This happened when I was still anti-camera, so the only pics I took are on my cellphone. However, we had so much fun, we resolved to go hiking at least 2-3 more times this fall.
Friday was a holiday (the last one before Christmas--eek!), so we woke up at 6 a.m. to head out to 가야산 (Gaya Mountain) for the day. Gayasan has Haeinsa, the temple I visited with Kelly in spring, but it also has several peaks with excellent hikes. We ended up tackling the South Peak, which began in an opposite direction from the trek through the temple. We were early enough that we barely saw anyone else on the 2 hour climb up. It was amazing.
After we finished, we found a place nearby to eat 파전 (pajeon, a green onion savory pancake of sorts--way more delicious than it sounds), 버섯 (mushrooms), and 동동주 (yes drinking after hiking is a bit of a tradition...). I got a little tittled and started pretending I was in Korean dramas. This lead to some silliness...
It was a really great day. We headed back to Daegu, exhausted and slept on the bus. Poor Min Gi had to work, but I got to meet Joey and Leah for Indian food and talking about Swing Club leadership stuff. It was amazing. Check out the whole album:
