We took the bus just outside of the Zhongxiao Fuxing for about an hour to get to Yeliou just outside of Keelung. It was only 50 NT to get into the park area where there were strict signs for no fishing. I should have brought an extra bottle of water. The parkw as very cool. The rocks sometimes reminded me of a martian landscape. They did indeed have interesting little insects crawling about. However they were quite skittish and easlily avoidable. Even when we cralwed into the cave and they were crawling all over the wall, they did everything they could to avoid us. The trail ended a little after the cave but we decided to keep going. A bit farther on there were quite a few guys fishing. I'm not sure how they got in without creating a lot of fuss since there was a great deal of signage that no fishing was allowed. There was a staircase carved into the side of the hill that led to the very top and end most point of the pennisula. It was a spectacular view. The wind was absolutely refreshing after the climb up to the top.
