Pictures from a DNF

Recommended Posts

Ever take a long hike to a picturesque spot to find a cache only to DNF the cache (but take back photos)? We'll here's a thread for that.

 

I took this picture last week from the cache location on a section of the Great Wall of China called Huanghuacheng. Unlike the Badaling section, the closest to Beijing where thousands of visitors go to see the wall each day, this section does not have public access. One has the check in at the house of a family that owns the land and make a small donation.

The DNF is a small price to pay. Amazing.

Astounding experience. Just curious if the required donation is a rule violation....

I would not think so. It's more like an admission fee, unless of course the CO is the one collecting the donations!

I hadn't considered that possibility and I don't know that the donation was *required*. In any case, it would be possible to get to GZ for that cache coming from the other direction. In fact, we talked to a couple of people (of the four that we saw) that had come from the other direction and had climbed up to the area near GZ (it was at the high point on the wall in that section).
