After a business trip to Hongyuan, the business was finished the next morning, and local friends took us to the scenic spots in Hongyuan. To be honest, Riganqiao was not too close to the county seat, and passed Vache on the way to Chuanzhu Temple. Because this section of the road is on the Red Plains prairie, the running is quite comfortable. When you arrive at the core of the scenic spot, you can look around. Except for the low and rolling hills, there are endless swamps. Because there was heavy rain a few days ago, there were puddles in many places. It can be imagined that when the Red Army crossed the grassland, it was this number. How difficult it is to advance in a swamp with double the amount of water. After staying in the city for a long time, I came to this endless grassland, letting go, relaxed and happy.
A swamp with a large area reflects the unique geological environment of the earth.
The Hongyuan Riganqiao Marsh is an important part of the Ruoergai Wetland Reserve, the largest plateau wetland in the world. The Riganqiao Marsh is between 3,300 and 3,500 meters above sea level. The soil quality is gleized marsh soil and peat swamp soil. Walking along the prairie road in the late autumn season, the vast prairie that can not be seen is full of eyes, the color is yellow and red. I thought this is the origin of the red land. When I saw the Rigan Qiao swamp, I suddenly realized that the red land is because Red Army......
Every inch of this swamp land has left the footprints of the Red Army. Friends who know modern Chinese history know that a heroic team once launched a tragic epic battle against nature here. That is 19 The Long March of the Red Army of Chinese Workers and Peasants for 35 years. This vast open swampland that connects the sky with swamps and quagmire, the weather is fickle, even in the mid-summer season, sometimes cold currents, sometimes heavy rains, squalls, hail, wind and snow can be seen at any time. For the Red Army, which had been fought from north to south for a long time, the clothing had already been reduced to the point that it could not be reduced. The thin clothes were in tatters, and the cold at night was so cold that they had to squeeze together in twos and threes to absorb the warmth from each other. More serious is the lack of food, so I had to dig wild vegetables, cook leather belts, drink cold water, and do everything possible to satisfy my hunger. The vast grassland was so cruel and ruthless, and it took the lives of many Red Army soldiers. The Hongyuan Riganqiao Red Army Cultural Tourism Zone has now been built, and its scope includes the three townships of Sedi, Maizhiwa, and Wache.
Just below the Red Army Crossing Meadow Monument, there are free attractions, and Premier Zhou’s inscription, why is this place called Hongyuan. The area is huge and I didn't spend too much time walking around.
