Doi Suthep

There is a beautiful Wat (temple) high up on the mountain that looks down on the Chiang Mai valley. The northern part of Thailand is very mountainous. Doi Suthep is the name of this particular mountain. Doi means mountain and I'm not sure what Suthep means. We actually went here a while ago with a group of friends from language class. The day was very cloudy and overcast and I was initially bummed that we couldn't see much, but the mist gave the place a surreal quality. Now I am acutally glad is was all misty. The girls had a great time running around.

Absolutely breath taking photos. I love the one of the two cute little girls with the "Big" waterfall below them. What a wonderful day it must have been. Also, the one looking up into the trees is awing .....
Love You Aunt Su
