She continued hiking and is still an avid hiker today. Ming has hiked many mountains around the world and thus developed an early passion for nature, especially waterfalls, streams, rivers, trees, birds. She becomes a landscape painter, because that is part of her life.

After two weeks travel through Zion canyon, Bryce canyon, North Grand canyon, Capital Reef, and Arches National parks that is the color image in my eye and at my mind. Every canyon has it’s own beauty and style, it was most unforgettable trip, breath taking views.
The high light is saw a quarrel at Zion canyon that love posting for people,  people surrounded him with camera, he would change position every few minutes.
