The photographs were taken during a trip to China where I participated in the Symposium of Asian-Pacific Mammalogy held in Huirou on the outskirts of Beijing. While in Beijing, Doug and I visited the Forbidden City, The Great Wall site at Mutianyu, and the Milu Reserve, created to repatriate Pére David's deer, at Nanhaizi. After the symposium, we joined a tour to the Inner Monglia Autonomous Region where we toured several sites in the vicinities of Hohhot, the capital city, the Daqing Shan (Great Black Mountains), Damaoqi, on the grasslands of the Mongolian Plateau, and the city of Baotou, a major iron and steel production centre.
NOTE: Don't forget to visit all three pages associated with Beijing and Damaoqi by using the "NEXT" and "BACK" buttons. Place cursor over pictures for more information.
Here are a few other pictures from excursions around Beijing and in Inner Mongolia.
