Snow-flecked Mount Jade
This was the view a few weeks ago from the top of Mount Dongpu (東埔山), an eminently-climbable peak (30 minutes' on foot from the main road to the summit) just inside Yushan National Park. It shows Taiwan's highest mountain with a bit of snow. A fortnight or so before I took this photo there was a great deal more snow, enough to prompt the national park to bring forward Mount Jade's annual closure.
