China 2001 - Coal Hill (Jingshan Park)

This hill was created as somewhere to put the burnt coal ashes. Over the generations it became rather a tall hill. It really serves as a good place to look down on the rest of the city. It was considered a clear day since we could see past the Forbidden City. I guess the smog abatement for the Olympics was working. I really think that it adds a lot more as a city park to have this huge hill in the middle then the newer city parks that I am used to that are much flatter.
