First lady Michelle Obama walked the Great Wall of China on Sunday, along with her daughters Malia and Sasha Obama, as part of her week-long trip promoting the "importance of education."

In a blog post for WhiteHouse.gov, Obama described the Great Wall as "breathtaking."

"The scenery on the way there was beautiful – a wide vista of mountains and trees – so the car ride alone was a treat," she said. "But then, running along the highest ridges of the mountains, you see it: The Great Wall – one of the great marvels of human history."

Obama even got a framed certificate for her efforts:
