On our second visit to Taipei city, Rachel and I went to the Yangmingshan National Park to check out the scenery there. We remembered passing by the area on the MRT during our first visit there and was awed by it’s grandeur outlook.

Here are some photos we took during our short excursion. We challenged each other to try to spot at least ten insects and/or wildlife and get a shot of them before we leave the area, hence there a quite a few such photos. 🙂
