Wilson trail to welcome 2017 ! It’s been a busy week for Christmas and count down at work ! I don’t want to over abused myself since we all have to work the next day so today we did nice and easy hike at this gorgeous weather like today and it didn’t feel like it’s winter at all.
The Wilson Trail is a 78 km long-distance footpath in Hong Kong, 63 km of which runs through Hong Kong country parks. It was named after David Wilson, Baron Wilson of Tillyorn, who was Governor of Hong Kong from 1987 to 1992. But we only did part of the trail for today ! The rest we could do for next time.
Let’s start our day !
