A Bit of Chinese Legend

This beautiful card came to me from Weixin.
It shows a UNESCO world heritage site, Huang Mountain
in AnHui province of China. Weixin was kind enough
to translate the Chinese characters above the
picture. They read: "AnHui Landscapes" and
"Huang Mountain".
This mountain was named for the legendary Huang Di,
who is reputed to be the ancestor of the Chinese
people. He was said to make pills for immortality
on this mountain.
Thank you, Weixin, for a very unique card!
These are the pretty stamps that
brought the card to me.
