All Quiet on The Great Wall. Badaling Section. For my visit to Beijing, I had a fantastic guide who managed to get me access to the Great Wall BEFORE it opened to the public! He asked me why I wanted to leave so early?! Now he knows why! This is one of the most visited and popular sections of the wall to visit and I am glad I was able to enjoy it with NO ONE THERE! (Sprinting to the top with a 30 pound camera pack was a little challenge!) I have another image 180 degrees the other direction also with no people - it is amazing how far the wall extends. This is the way a treasure like this is supposed to be enjoyed!
