All this week, you’ve been seeing signs from Emei Shan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its significance as a Buddhist peak and the historic temples that line its slopes. But today’s sign isn’t about protecting valuables or telling you to like monkeys when you should really fear them; it’s a little saying about nature:
A Chinese proverb perhaps? Well, regardless of what this is, it’s understandable why they would want to protect their trees. After all, their landscape is so very lush that it makes the hike up quite serene, at least till you get to the point where you can’t see anything anymore due to all the fog…

Cool photos. Love the third one….it’s eerie and beautiful at the same time. Looks like the trees are trying to say something…
I know, aren’t they awesome? And thanks!
Great pics Aaron, especially love the atmospheric misty
one, top job!
Thanks! I credit mother nature for making striking scenes!
Still have to capture the image just right 🙂
Their proverb makes little sense.. Weird how those trees grew. Could it be because of the permanent/strong winds there? Funny 🙂
It’s possible. It wasn’t windy when I was there, but they are on the side of a mountain, which I’m sure leaves them exposed to many different elements. It is curious though how the surrounding trees don’t seem to be affected at all…
The third image is just stunning…beautiful! I have a
feeling that the Chinese saying hasn’t been translated well, though
I do get the meaning…
