A few weekends ago the weather warmed up, and we broke our hiking fast with a pleasant walk Fujoushan (Fuzhoushan) Park. We were just in time to see the rhododendrons coming into bloom, which reminded me of our visit to Maokong last year.
It was cloudy but warm the day we went for our walk. Near the entrance to the park is a handy set of guidelines on unacceptable activities. I love reading these, because they're an indication of what some people would like to do in the park, given the chance.
Butterflies were the best part of the walk for me. I managed to take a couple of blurry snaps.
Not sure what these are. Some kind of swallowtail?
Fujoushan adjoins the more famous, but much smaller, Fuyang Eco Park. This park is divided into areas devoted to tree frogs, butterflies, flying squirrels and other wildlife and ecosystems. Fuyang Park is just a few minutes from Linguang Station. By wandering around Fujoushan for an hour or so and over to Fuyang, you can complete a round trip for a couple of hours without backtracking.
It was cloudy, and the air was a little smoggy, but we enjoyed our short trek through Fujoushan. Hopefully the first of many more walks this year.
