The Red River

As I’m sitting here in Dali in Yunnan Provence I’ve been reading about the area.

The history is pretty interesting but even more interesting to me is the geology.

I was reading about the Red River which rises not many miles from where I’m sitting now. It flows down through Yunnan, is used to mark the border with Vietnam for some distance. It passes through Hekou and Lao Cai, as will we. Then flows across northern Vietnam to Hanoi and empties into the South China Sea.

So from here we will be indirectly following this river for almost 800 miles. Interesting to me at least…
