d68***86I never liked to write a review, but here I must come a praise. I took a group of old classmates chartered the northwestern loop for 6 days, but later felt not addicted, want to ride a horse, so drove from Xining to Shandan Jun Racecourse. The scenery is like a paradise, surrounded by the green mountains in the distance, the mountains have white snow, the occasional yellow wheat or canola field inlaid in the green grassland, the white clouds in the distance to increase the landscape layer, all is especially beautiful. In the morning, the view falls in the next place, walking quietly, in the mind many things are relaxed, special relaxation. The main purpose is to ride a horse, the horse is gentle, I only shout "driving", can run up, trot some bump, in the good grass even shout a few loud run up, the horse legs are all stride is particularly stable, the feeling of the horse is particularly good. But in August, the horses were tired, and I was reluctant to ride. I thought, as long as I had the conditions, that in June, the horses came to run when they were fat and healthy for a few days. In Shandan, I met two Marines on leave and raced happily together. I was a novice, but I loved riding. The horse needs to pay attention to the height of the ankle, put a certain weight on the foot, follow the undulation, so that not bumpy back pain, imagine riding mountain bike encounter a bump situation, a little rear lift, relax a bit, it is very happy.

Forest
_We***75The heat in the city has been unbearable, hot, dry, heat waves make people annoyed by the bath. Take the family to Wuzhishan to summer, the scenery is good, the greening of the mountain roadside has been shaped into green pine and various colors of maple tree, all colors are small 🌸 contests, and then you go down to Wuzhishan, take a sightseeing bus and go up to Jade Emperor View, just go out the door, cool breeze, comfortable. Walk to the forest is more light rhyme, cool wind rubbing noodles, heart is happy, wonderful master. Famous place of summer resort, in the vast original forest everywhere the language, everyone nostalgic for round trip. Great beauty of the mountain, in some time reflected the drenching. Mountains and water beautiful, the scenery is more beautiful.

Museum
滇国剑客This place is located in the remote western part of the country. Therefore, it is incomparable with the cultural relics in the developed areas in the interior, but it also has its own local characteristics. Through the unearthed cultural relics and exhibits, people can have a real feeling about the development of Shandan.
