모악산에 다시

Translation: Moak mountain again.

I love Moak-San. I’m sure any of you who have read my previous attempts at describing its majesty realize this. I also love my new camera. The photos are so much clearer! So here it is, my (most recent) attempt at bringing it all together once again.

This was an exhausting trip. It started off on a bad foot with me overpacking my messenger bag. (Something I really wish I’d be able to learn from, but each trip finds me repeating the same mistakes again and again.) Ebook, camera, snacks, drinks – all things that add up before you know it. While I enjoyed being able to take breaks whenever I wanted and relax while reading a book, I most certainly did not enjoy the following three days of back pain (mainly soreness).


It didn’t help that in a flash of “brilliance,” I decided to climb up first right-hand path I saw, reach the summit, and then climb down the left-hand path. Using a trail whose overgrowth seems to indicate that it’s long been abandoned.

But what a trip. On the way down I ran across this guy:


Daegam Rock (대감 – lord) named after its resemblance to the daegam sitting besides it. Look, even while climbing down a mountain, I still can’t avoid learning new vocabulary words!

As an added bonus, the summit has those big binoculars you find at zoos set up for public use. “Public use” as in “free to use so that you can scope out the (total) distance you had to ride your bike to get there.
