Silks Palace in Taroko Gorge and had arranged for them to pick us up at the train station in Hualien. The drive through the gorge to the hotel took our breath away. We just couldn't believe how beautiful the gorge was.
The hotel sat at the confluence of two rivers.
There were a selection of hot tubs on the roof that offered a variety of temperatures. From here you could soak in the hot water and soak in the view at the same time.
Across the river from the hotel sat a monastery.
We were able to go explore it on our first afternoon.
We could go into the tower and climb up to the top.
The tower gave us great views of the Gorge and the little village beside us - Tienhsiang.
Water thundered everywhere.
This sign was not very comforting!
I like this one - nice sturdy concrete.
But this one I refused to cross - too high, too long, too narrow, too ropee, too swayee...
We had a beautiful time in each others company, having adventures and reveling in more of the wonders our planet has to offer us.
