Why destroy what is already beautiful?

Mi nombre es Eric. Me especializo en Español y la ingeniería ambiental en NCSU. I love the outdoors and art. I swim and love backpacking/hiking and scuba diving. You can usually catch me doodling crazy designs when I get bored in class. Enjoy!

the remote, secluded and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range five hundred years ago during the ming dynasty. during the early spring season, when these photos were taken, the terraces, once planted, are irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create these images.
