These are scenes from Seoraksan, one of the most beloved mountains in Korea, just before our monsoon started.  --- tk

Nice pics! Does it actually feel like summer there at this time?

Yes, summer indeed. The daily high hit 32 a few days ago, but occasional monsoon rains cool it by several degrees.  As long as the overnight temperature is below 25, it's okay.  --- tk

Your pictures are very beautiful! I have never been to Korea - I worked in Japan for 2 months in 1990, that is the nearest I have been. I had never thought about Korea having rural areas, I have always thought of it as being very densely populated. Thank you for educating me!

Great pics, Tk. The sheer walls in the second photo remind me greatly of a place just a few clicks from my place called Mount Hypipamee Crater. It's an old volcanic plug.
