There are a few hikes already from this time period on the blog, but here are three I missed reporting on.
On November 10, My son and I went hiking in Jinyoung, a village that is within Kimhae city limits.
Next, another trip to Seokbulsa on November 13 Two coworkers and I visited the fortress on Keumjeongsan, then hiked to Seokbulsa.
Yes, we took a cable car most of the way up the mountain to the fortress, but in our defense, we did hike nearly down to sea level before climbing back up to Seokbulsa.
And finally, Baekyangsan, December 13
As a linking (rhetorical or narrative, not internetical) device, let me start by looking across a valley to the beginning of another hike I have done. We are looking at Dongseo University and the previous hike went southerly to Hadan subway station.
Again with the narrative linking. At the base of the blade of rock in the middle of the picture is Seokbulsa, described here and, well, here in this post.
We finished near Gupo market and found many animals for sale, most were alive.
In Canada I was, and will be, a canoeist. Perhaps I will also try to hike more. Here, hiking is nearly as required as eating kimchi or visiting a Buddhist temple. I will miss the mountains when I leave.
