8670 feet high (2650 km) is the Kingâ€™s Pagoda at Doi Inthanon mountain and National park. What a sight, we got there in the afternoon just before the clouds engulfed the mountain â€“ you can see the foggy clouds moving in. Not many tourist â€“ actually just 6 there today including us, but a lot of tribal workers planting new flowers and park rangers working on the facilities. It was 35 C (95F) degrees in Chiang Mai and here it was 18 (64F) degrees C. quite a difference but not as cold a SF. Very comfortable for me but cold for Tasanai and all the workers were in jackets and extra clothing â€“ Before you get to the top of the mountain there are 2 major waterfalls â€“ Maeya and Wachirathan Falls â€”â€“ I didnâ€™t have the wide angle lens with me so these shots donâ€™t rally show the size â€“ but they are both big and beautiful â€“ there are really spectacular during the rainy season, but I donâ€™t think you can get very close at that time â€”â€“ If you come to visit we will make sure a side trip to the park is in your itinerary.
Iâ€™ll try to add more pictures in the Gallery â€“ I hope to have it set up before the first of the year â€“ but I am working on the AsianCoOp Shopping Cart store software first and this seems like a major project â€“ cutting into my travels.
