Jingshan Trek
        Meng Jiao 751-814

Hordes of horseflies 
        assault my poor horse,
Washed in blood
        it can't go on.
On the trail behind 
        darkness deepens,
On the mountain above 
        tigers roar.
This traveler's heart now,
        a banner 
            flutters wind-blown 
                        a hundred feet high!
 
Jīngshān Xíng
Mèng Jiāo 751-814

Zhòng méng jù bìng mǎ.
Xǐ xuě bù dé xíng;
Hòu lù qǐ yè sè,
Qián shān wén hǔ shēn.
Cǐ shí yóu zǐ xīn,
Bǎi chǐ fēng zhōng jīng.

Notes:
京山 Jingshan is in Hubei Province, north of Wuhan towards Xiangfan. We have not yet visited there, but it is close to Lumenshan, so this photo is of the trek up Lumenshan.
