Yulu Historic Trail(Dayukeng)
Taiwan

This old trail was used by fish sellers in Jinshan to transport fish on foot to Beitou and Shilin for higher profits during World War II. They usually set off from Huanggang Harbor, carrying their fish load on a shoulder-pole, passed Chengtian Temple and the cemetery, along the old street, and followed the trail up to Yangmingshan, all the way to Beitou and Shilin to sell the fish. They would then make the return journey via Dayoukeng to carry sulfur on the way back for more profits. Day after day, and year after year, the fish sellers trod the perilous “fish route,” leaving behind many stories about the hardships of life at that time.


Today, this trail has been designated one of the 12 trails of Yangmingshan National Park. The four-kilometer-long trail, lined with greenery, meadows, and forests, is now a famous hiking path.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
