Yangtze - Wu & Qutang Gorges

Cruise through Wu (Witches) Gorge, mist-enshrouded mountains including the legendary Twelve Peaks.  Board a sightseeing vessel for a cruise on the Daning River into Lesser Three Gorges.  See some of the Yangtze's most beautiful scenery in these gorges which is inaccessible by larger ships.  Return to ship and sail into Qutang Gorge, the shortest and narrowest of the Three Gorges.

Today we saw an example of ancient caskets hung on rock ledges and monkeys scampering on the gorge walls.  The monkeys generated the most interest!  AGAIN, the smog diminished ones enjoyment of what is probably grand scenery.  Everyone was lamenting that their pictures are going to be less than desirable.

We have decided that lazy susans are not always the best manner of table service.  There have been more than a few glasses knocked over by extended spoons, and inevitably we start to turn it when someone else is trying to serve themselves.
