The Bridge of Immortals, Huangshan, China ~ Strangely-shaped granite peaks, amazing scenery, beautiful sunsets and striking heights. The Yellow Mountains in eastern Asia is really something every person should experience. The world’s highest bridge, The Bridge Of Immortals, is situated in the Yellow Mountains, also known as Huangshan. From the bridge you will have a breathtaking view, and see how the clouds are touching mountainsides beneath you.
‘We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it,’ always seemed to me like an odd expression, as if somehow saying it meant we can solve a problem, we just don’t want to, or that you just wanted to avoid the whole thing altogether. It seems to to make more sense to say we’ll cross that river, or gorge, or desert when it comes up. But here you have a bridge that was built to get you to the other side of something. I mean what’s the sense of having it unless you’re going to use the damn thing!
