thursday, may 9.
we got there saturday afternoon and took the cable car up to one of the peaks.
the views at the top were absolutely breathtaking and, obviously, no picture could ever do it justice, but here's a look anyway.
at the top, the amount of women in white pants and/or inappropriate shoes (while sliding down a VERY DANGEROUS rock face) was simply unreal. unfortunately, i don't have any photos to prove this, but just trust me. shit was cray.
the weather couldn't have been more pleasant, and as erin palisin puts it, seoraksan national park is the "most beautiful place in korea."
[i mean, seriously, check out that scenery!!]
the next morning, we hiked to ulsanbawi "rock." naturally, we expected our destination to be just one large rock, but low and behold, we actually hiked to this peak (!!):
[the one at the top of this next photo...]
there were a few interesting things to see on our hike such as temples, rest stops, adorable hand-painted signs, and, of course, the typical and very serious korean hiking gear.
finally, we reached the peak!
it was such a wonderful weekend spent with two of my ladies. i didn't have a taste for hiking back in the PNW (shamefully enough...), but i'm glad to have discovered it here in korea.
