Is it really a National Park?

Last week, Jason & I set out on the subway to explore Sheshan National Forest Park.  We're always looking for ways to escape the city and this seemed like a good one.  We'd seen the place in the distance before and had done a little research to find out that it is literally the only spot in Shanghai that isn't flat. 

As we got closer, we realized once again how spoiled we've been to have spent most of our lives living in places where there are amazing national parks...that being said, we did have a fun day exploring this park and even found a few paths where we didn't see any other people for a few minutes.

The only "mountain" in all of Shanghai.  Yep, that's it.  Pretty impressive, right? ;-)

At the highest natural point in Shanghai (I am sure there are buildings downtown taller than this little hill).

A really cool flower growing alongside the road.
