柏架山行記錄 2017 a walk at mt parker, journal

一月中這星期天,天陰微雨,決定起行走進郊外。原因是近年香港人都愛鑽進郊外,好天氣的週末,山中的人多比美購物區,所以有點刻意避開人潮。天氣不佳但未至於差的日子,應該是寧靜郊外行的好時機。 但仍然是不折扣的城市人,選擇還是很城市的路線。 countryside has become the new hot spot for hongkongers in recent years. people rush to country parks and rural areas over weekends and public holidays. it is more so when weather is good. i started avoiding crowd on blue sky days. last sunday, the sky was grey. i told myself it could be...
