The CLO (community liaison officer) organized a Labor Day outing to theÂ National Forest Park in Shenyang. Because it wasn’t a Chinese holiday, there were very, very few people in the park. We mostly had the whole park to ourselves.
The park contains several mountains, including the highest point in Shenyang, appropriately called the “top peak of Shenyang.”
The weather was perfect, the air was clean, and there were no city noises.
Now that Labor Day is behind us, I guess summer is officially over. The weather is still hot, though, and the leaves don’t show any sign of changing color. I will enjoy this weather while it lasts, and try to remember it when winter hits.
