A thin line across the land

A view of the Great Wall of China, heading west. Photo taken at Mutianyu in the springtime.
From a distance the Great Wall looks like a thin line snaking across the countryside.

A bird’s eye view of the same area.

It is a myth that the Great Wall of China is visible from space but one time, when the air was exceptionally clear, I saw it from the window of the airplane as I headed for home. The picture is not great, taken with my old cell phone through a plane window, but I was pretty excited since this is the part of the wall that I walked.
