English Narrative

06-Aug-2006 -- 去年暑假我的摩托西藏阿里行未进藏就受伤放弃,今年暑假策划了自行车内蒙行。出来之前就在网上查寻到了一些沿路可能探访的汇交点。

我们昨天游览了蒙族的藏传佛教祠庙五当召后骑行到固阳县城,今天一大早从固阳县城出发向朝阳骑行的路上来探寻这一点。从地图上该点应在城东南十公里左右,恰好在从固阳去朝阳的路上,距路边约一英里多。

从固阳出来后沿X074县道骑行了4公里后,GPS指示该点就在右手路边一公里多的西北方向。这是一大片很开阔的河滩地,我们很快就找到了该点。距该点北面很近的是一片向日葵地,我们在这里合影留念。

English Narrative

06-Aug-2006 -- I had to give up my motorcycle trip to Ali Tibet last summer after I sustained an injury before I reached Tibet. For this summer I decided to visit Inner Mongolia by bicycle. Before staring out I found from the internet some confluence points can be reached along the trip.

We cycled back to Guyang county after sight-seeing at Wudangzhao, the Mongolian Tibetan Buddhist Temple. To find the CP, we started from Guyang heading for Chaoyang by bike. The map indicated that this point should be around 10 kms southeast of the city and situated exactly on the way from Guyang to Chaoyang, about 1 mile away from the road.

After 4 kms riding along county highway X074 out of Guyang, GPS indicated this point lied 1km northwest on the right side of the road. The point is located at a wide open river bed; we found it quickly. We made pictures on a sunflowers patch which was near northern part of the point.
