Things Seen Out Biking
Sunday morning I headed out for Dajia and the Matsu Temple there, hoping to find a way back along the north bank of the Dajia Riverthat didn't involve the big hills of Rte 132. The whole trip took about 4 hours, 1.5 to the Temple, and 2.5 for the swing back along the river. As I left Dajia and headed south along 1, I could smell the salt-sweet ocean off to my right somewhere. It was a stunning morning, soon clouded over, a perfect day for biking with neither sun nor wind.
Soon after I turned off the main road just before the bridge on 1, I shot this panorama of Highway 3 as it crosses the rice fields along the river just before the Chingshui/Highway 4 exit.
