The scenery on the journey from Dali to Lijiang is spectacular.  In the absence of suitable washrooms we stopped often for what Jasmine euphemistically called 'beautiful bush' breaks
Whenever the scenery was at it's most inspiring someone would call 'Beautiful Bush' and we could take a break and a photo
Who knew China could be this beautiful for mile after mile, hour after hour?

 

Boys being boys at the roadside lunch stop en route to Lijiang

Shutters at the little roadside restaurant.   As always the food was delicious and we the only Western diners

 

Grottoes of Shibaoshan
Precious Stones Stone Bell Temple

It's a short steep climb to the caves but worth the effort to see the carvings of Buddhist deities, royalty and animals dating from the ninth century
