Taroko Gorge

Jenna had no early Monday class, and I had nothing scheduled on Monday, so we went down to Hualien for the weekend. We decided to stay all day Monday too when Jenna found out she had no class that evening.

Hualien itself is not a very exciting city, but there is great natural beauty nearby. Taroko Gorge represents Taiwan's single biggest natural tourist attraction.
The gorge was carved out of marble cliffs.
Exposed marble.

There is a Buddhist temple in the gorge, open to tourists.
