    For long streches the Yanchi section of the GW is a double Ming Dynasty wall. The inner wall beeing much higher and stronger, the beacon towers of about the same size. The landscape is a desert, vilages are rare and distant.

    The point where the wall splits into two walls:

    chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
    chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
    chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

    The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of people, who have not viewed the world. (Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), German naturalist and explorer)
