Black Dragon Pool Park Lijiang Kunming China

Lijiang was definately atmospheric. In the old part of town just about everything was designed to catch the tourist eye. The Black Dragon Pool Park certainly did that. A mixture of old and new coupled with water – stilland expansive or flowing over small rapids. Flowers galore. The older generation was out in force   dressed in traditional Naxi attire ..small groups doing local dances accompanied by small handheld drums. It is also know as the photo hotspot for views of Yulong mountain. Unfortunately for us only a beautiful mild sunny day with blue skies and decorative clouds….

If you look closely in  the background is a boat made of flowers.

Tranquility….

Rapids and the soft sound of water flowing…..

Yours truly at a photo hotspot! For those of you with a creative imagination…. behind those clouds is a very large and grand mountain! Not to be seen today.

Water is the source of life…

This sign  of course speaks for itself.

I had  great time  standing  behind and trying to figure out the steps. They were good and kept going for ages!!

Some locals waiting in the wings….
