Photographer's Note

this is a photo of what is known as the "overhanging wall" - a section of the great wall in the desert nearby to jiayuguan. this is generally accepted as the end of the great wall, and this portion has been restored for touring. the top allows for an interesting view of jiayuguan, smokestacks, and the outlying gobi desert. this was a MUCH more authentic and interesting great wall experience than i had at badaling near beijing.
