Cliff, Little Three Gorges, China

Near Shuan Long village in the Little Three Gorges, this cliff held a walkway built by the emporer Qin over two thousand years ago, to give his army access to the interior of the province and to transport brine from salt mines to the Yangtze through a bamboo aqueduct. Three postholes are visible near the top of the image.
