Taiwan Day 5 - Hualien: Taroko National Park
So, I had made plans and decided to go down to Hualien for Day 5 and 6 of my stay in Taiwan. My grandma came with me. Our train was at 7:20am so once again we got up early and went out the door by 6:50am. Unfortunately I didn't get a train lunchbox this trip. It was kind-of early and when I came back it was kind-of late. Train lunch boxes are so tasty, but once again, I'll have to do that next time I visit.
Anyway, my aunt had booked a car/van for us that day and wanted to take us to see the sights as soon as we arrived. The Taroko National Park is located in Hualien and it's beautiful. That was our first destination. Apparently it's really important that you get there first thing in the morning because, honestly, by about noon time there were so many tour buses traveling on the roads in the mountains it was a huge pain to get around and find parking.
Here are some sights. There are a lot more pictures so I think I'll go ahead and do another post on this park.
