Photographer's Note

Most of the tour boats coming downriver from Chongqing to Yichang stop at the small town of Wushan, which is on the junction of the Yangzi River & Little Three Gorges. As I cannot function midwinter without a hot shower & hot coffee at 5 am, I passed on the option to tour the little 3 gorges, & wandered around the town instead. I also stocked up on snacks, tissues, sweets chocolate, & other minor groceries, as the range on the Chinese tour boat was limited.

This is a view from the town. The dam waters will flood 1/2 way up the distant mountain (which has already been cleared) by 2009. The Yangzi River is on the right. "Wu-shan" is Chinese for '5 mountains'. The smoke from the distant fire, which was drifting to the left, has obscured the left hand side of the horizon.
