Odd-gestured Pine

2010-11-27    

In Mt. Huangshan , where there are peaks, there are wonderful rocks. The steeper the rocky peaks, the more irregular the shapes of the pines. So the 4 Spectacular Uniques of Odd-shaped Pines, Queer Rocks, Sea of Clouds and Hot Springs constitute all the wonders of mountain scenery.

Huangshan 's Odd-shaped Pines take root deep in rocky crevices and display one thousand and one postures. (The Guest-greeting Pine at the Jade Screen Peak is their outstanding example with its boughs out-stretching like arms welcoming mountain climbers).
