Great Wall at Mutianyu,Bejing, China
I visited the Great Wall of China for the first time last fall while working in Bejing. I had the driver/guide take me early in the morning to "beat" the crowed and we got there two hours early. Finally, about an hour before it opened, a security guard was king enough to let us up the tram and experience a beautiful morning sunrise over the autumn foliage. It was quite COLD though, but how many times do you get a chance to take a picture with no other tourist around??? Breathtaking!
