More Scenic views of the Gorge
It was a perfect morning, with good weather and much sunshine as our Chinese cruiser moved silently over the gentle waters of the Shennong. Everything seemed quiet. Only the chatter and slight noise from our boat broke the eerie quietness of that place. Part of it, as I look back, seemed frozen in time....the peace and tranquility of the area we passed through, I mean. It is hard to imagine that once upon a time, especially during the 3 Kingdom period, fierce battles were fought here at the Shennong River.
