Today's adventure: Xi Tou
From walking on various trails throughout the park, we found a bamboo grove and hit up the popular tourist sites including education pond, skywalk and the giant tree.
Fun fact- I was here maybe 6-7 years ago and walked to the the giant tree in the pouring rain. Pretty much my only memory of that trip other than the nice wooden cabins we stayed in
