Goodbye Hike: Picture 2

Here is a picture of the edge of the plateau that took us an hour to walk to.  Gansu unlike other areas of China is brown; however, in the summer it does get greener.  We don't have waterfalls nor lush dark green wet landscapes.  We do have apricot trees growing wild everywhere as the government tries to fight deforestation where the the earth could turn into even a more dry wasteland.  It took us forever to hike to the bottom because everyone was stopping to eat sour apricots.
