... dropped us off at the trail head. There was no going back now - we had to hike this section of the Great Wall if we wanted to get back to our car in the village. It was bitterly cold and windy, so we all layered up and set out on our hike. We walked on a small trail until we reached the Great Wall, which shot straight up the side of the mountain.
