A Beagle Explores the Hong Kong Trail

Many people associate Hong Kong with this...Buildings and crowd.

True, Hong Kong is densely populated and heavily built up. But, Hong Kong is also this...Country parks and greenery.

Once my humans bought a set of wheels, we've been spending our holidays and weekends exploring the surrounding country parks. The cool weather is ideal for humans and beagle alike to go on long walks on parts of the Hong Kong trail. The Hong Kong trail is a 50km walking route which spans from the east to the west of Hong Island and passes through five country parks. So far, my humans and I have mainly explored the trails in the Aberdeen Country Park.

At the beginning of autumn last year, we checked out the Aberdeen Reservoir...The weather was warmer then and my humans could still go in T-shirt and shorts.

On another trip, we admired the view of the Happy Valley Race Course from the Black Link's trail.

Further down the Black Link's trail, we enjoyed the lush green hills and breathed in fresh clean air. The weather has cooled considerably and out came the jumpers and long pants.

One time, we explored Lady Clementi's trail, a lovely shaded trail with quaint stone bridges and gentle meandering paths.

This beagle can't wait for my next country park outing!
