Gunung Kinabalu

4/2/2020 Morning. I was up at 7am and trudged up the hill and paid my fifteen ringgit to get into the National Park. I turned left and followed the road around the bottom of the mountain. It was foggy at first but it soon fined up and later on the sun came up. I was alternating between hot and cold. It is about one thousand meters of altitude at the bottom of the mountain.
