It has been raining for over 3 months in Taipei district, we had a 4 day weekend last week and it rained the whole time which forced me to cancel our 3 day getaway to the aboriginal mountains, as frustrated as I can ever be, I was hoping we get a sunny Sunday since it was a working Sunday for the country to make up for a long break we got over Chinese New Year. Just to make sure I get my weather forecast right, I have 4 apps on my iPhone under Weather, all four showed NO RAIN on Sunday so I booked a car for a little Sunday excursion. It started raining again after I reserved the car so the driver called me back to confirm again about my booking since he would have to cancel his 3 other clients for me, I puzzled but somehow I was determined to get out of the city, the rain and humidity was suffocating me. The first thing I did after I woke up this morning was to look out the window and it was dry, not sunny but good enough so here we go! It was chilly and kids had turtlenecks on, we made a detour to YehLiu Geo Park, it was a total spontaneous stop recommended by our driver so we listened and went.
YehLiu is north of Taipei and the Park stretches 1.7m along the ocean. It is a natural phenomenon from wave erosions, weathering and earth movement, making it one of the must sees in Taiwan.
