A few of us went to Fraser’s Hill in April. The weather at Fraser’s Hill was still cold and misty in the morning.
In the evening, the sunset was mesmerizing ..
We have a fantastic view of the sunset right from the living room. Below, Amy is taking photo of the sunset just before dinner was served.
We saw lots of butterflies and everyone had a great time taking photo of species which are not commonly seen at lower elevation.
