Seoraksan National Park, Day 1.5
Korean hospitality always seems to be at its best on the mountains. The man in the left of the picture - a veteran public school teacher - invited me to join for dinner. Considering that we were near the highest peak of the national park, they did a pretty good job of brewing up some kimchi-ji-gae (kimchi soup), with plenty of side dishes. As always in such situations, flavor was the best sauce.
The twilight view of the geoids on the hill.
In the fading light of the ridge, I took a few experimental shots of the grasses blowing in the fierce wind. The inspiration came from a particular scene in Werner Herzog's Grizzly Man.
