Solomon Priestley, Gabrielle Frances and I are good friends from college. We are all people who love adventure and exploration. We have been to many places together, seen many sceneries, and experienced many stories. After graduation, we chose different careers and lifestyles, but we kept in touch and shared our joys and sorrows. Last month, they came to China from the United States to visit me. This was the first time we met after graduation. I was very happy and excited.

To celebrate our reunion, I decided to take them to a special place – Hengyang Pengyuan Xian Forest Park. This is a national forest park located in the south of Hengyang City, Hunan Province, China. It is famous for its strange peaks and rocks, caves and karst, clouds and mist, and fairy atmosphere. I chose this place because I think it can show the natural beauty and cultural charm of China, and also bring us some novel and exciting experiences.hunting

Our plan was to stay near the park for two days, visit various attractions in the park during the day, and use night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars for night hunting adventures at night. Night vision binoculars are devices that can magnify light and enhance contrast in the dark. They can let us see clearly the animals and environment at night. Infrared binoculars are devices that can detect heat radiation and convert it into visible images. They can let us find prey hidden in the dark. These two binoculars are essential equipment for night hunting. They can make it easier for us to catch our desired targets.

In addition to hunting, we also plan to taste the local specialties. I heard that Hengyang has a lot of delicious food, such as yulin xiangyao (spicy pork kidney), Hengyang fish powder (fish and rice noodle soup), subao yuebing (crispy mooncake), heye baofan (lotus leaf rice), etc. I want to let my classmates taste the flavor of China and feel the customs and culture of China.

This adventure is a rare opportunity for us, and also an opportunity to challenge ourselves. We are full of expectations and preparations, hoping to have a memorable time in Hengyang Pengyuan Xian Forest Park.

We had two days full of joy and surprise in Hengyang Pengyuan Xian Forest Park. We did various activities and experiences in the park, which made us feel the charm and diversity of this place.

We stayed at a farmhouse near the park, which is a form of rural tourism that provides accommodation and catering. We lived in a clean and comfortable wooden house, where we could hear the birdsong and stream sound every morning. Our landlord was a pair of warm and friendly old couple, who prepared us rich and delicious meals every day.

We tasted the local specialties here, which opened our eyes and appetites. The most impressive one was yulin xiangyao, which is a dish made of pork kidney, chili, pepper, ginger, garlic and other spices. It has a bright red color, a fragrant smell, a tender and spicy taste. We also tried Hengyang fish powder, which is a soup made of crucian carp, rice noodles, tofu, cilantro and other ingredients. The soup is light and savory, the rice noodles are fine and soft, the tofu is smooth and rich. Besides these, we also tasted subao yuebing and heye baofan and other delicacies, which made us praise endlessly.

We visited various attractions in the park during the day, which opened our eyes and hearts. The most amazing thing for us was Pengyuan Peak, which is the highest peak in the park and one of the birthplaces of Chinese Taoist culture. We took a cable car to the top of the mountain, and saw clouds and mist around the peak, like a fairyland. On the top of the mountain, there is an ancient and solemn temple – Pengyuan Temple, which is said to be the place where Li Bai, a poet of the Tang Dynasty, practiced. There is a 18-meter-high bronze statue of Li Bai in the temple, majestic and sacred. We worshiped Li Bai in the temple and appreciated his poems. We also overlooked other attractions in the park from the top of the mountain, such as Dage limestone cave, Penglai scenery with clouds and mist, etc., which made us marvel.

We used night vision binoculars and infrared binoculars to explore night hunting at night, which made us feel excited and fun. Night vision binoculars are devices that can magnify light and enhance contrast in the dark, allowing us to see animals and environments at night. Infrared binoculars are devices that can detect thermal radiation and convert it into visible images, allowing us to find prey hidden in the dark. Under the guidance of our landlord, we entered a forest in the park and started our hunting trip. We observed various nocturnal animals with night vision binoculars, such as foxes, rabbits, hedgehogs, owls, etc., and sometimes heard their calls. We used infrared binoculars to find suitable prey, such as pheasants, ducks, deer, etc., and then shot them with guns or bows and arrows. We encountered some thrilling and interesting scenes during the hunting process, such as once we were almost hit by a wild boar, once we mistook a squirrel for a pheasant, once we found a rare white peacock, etc. We finally harvested several pheasants and a deer, as well as many wonderful memories.

Our adventure in Hengyang Pengyuan Xian Forest Park gave us a lot. We not only appreciated the natural beauty and cultural charm of this place, but also tasted the local specialty food, and experienced the excitement and fun of night hunting. We felt the joy and responsibility of living in harmony with nature here, and also felt the happiness and warmth of sharing with friends. We had a deeper understanding and recognition of Hengyang city and Pengyuan Xian Forest Park. We learned about its geographical location, landscape features, history and culture, as well as its development status and future planning. We think this is a place worth visiting and respecting. We hope it can maintain its original appearance and adapt to the changes of the times, becoming a more beautiful and prosperous place.

We tasted Hengyang’s specialty food, broadened our taste horizons, and enhanced our understanding and respect for local customs and culture. We think that the food here is not only delicious but also has stories. Every dish has its origin and meaning, every ingredient has its effect and function. We think that the food here is an art as well as a wisdom. We hope to learn how to make food here, and also inherit its food culture, so that more people can taste its flavor.

We experienced the excitement and fun of night hunting using advanced night vision and infrared devices as well as following reasonable hunting rules. We think that hunting is a way to challenge ourselves as well as interact with nature. We exercised our body and will during hunting process as well as cultivated our love and protection for animals and environment. We think that hunting is a pleasure as well as a responsibility. We hope to explore more night ecological mysteries as well as maintain more ecological balance.

We think that friendship is a precious wealth as well as an invaluable support. No matter where we are or what we do we will miss each other care for each other.
