05d Bats & Mountaintop Temples (20 images)

Our friend Jing suggested an interesting "program" for November 25th.  She suggested a trip out southwest of town to visit the bat caves and a couple of nearby temples perched atop hills.  We had visited the bat caves (& related Wat Khao Chong Phram) very early during our stay here 5 years ago (see: albums 1  & 19a)  We had also visited one of the hill top temples (Wat Nong-Hoi) before and had seen the other huge Buddha image on the other hill.  Jing drove and we tried to recognize the familiar and what was new.  We would visit the hilltop religious sites first, before dusk would  bring the flood of bats out. An interesting late afternoon and evening.
