On my first trip out from the city bounds of Chongqing, I ended up at the advertised ski resort of Jinfo Mountain.  Of course, this resort’s skiing activities were limited to two slight inclines that they called hills, and nothing like the pictures shown near the entrance and other adverts.

The highlight of the day was certainly the cable car trip both up and down the mountain, as it took us through the thick cloud layer which seems to blanket this region of China.  Looking back over them as the light bounced back into the sky as the sun fell, it certainly gave a brief moment of serenity in my new setting.
