Run from Danshui 淡水 to Yehliu 野柳 (57 km, 8 hours, ↕2500 m)

There was idea run from Danshui on the west sea cost across Yamingshan mountains to Yehliu peninsula. The goal was also run as much as possible on trails, even there are two vulcanos (磺嘴山 and 大尖後山)
Unfortunately the trail to these vulcanos was closed and I found another way how to go closer but it cost bigger effort. First ten kilometers and last c. 15 kilometers were run on the non atractive road. It was 57.5 km during 8:10. Next time will cover this direction on the trails.
