|Setting off from Jeungshim Temple (증심사).|
|A view of the city from partway between Jungmorijae and Jungbong. About 800m up.|
|Playing around in the snow en route.|
|Looking up toward the Seoseokdae (서석대) rock formation near the top. Standing on top of this at 1105m is the highest you can get on Mudeung as the peak (at 1187) is occupied by the military and cordoned off to the public.|
Fortunately for us, the snow was still fresh enough that our lack of cramp-ons was in no way a factor (though it did make 'ski-ding' down the mountain at the end much more fun) and many of those we encountered were just happy to see foreigners so enjoying their mountain.
|A view of the Ipseokdae (입석대) formation. They are huge! To give you some idea, if I were standing at the base of that pillar, my head still wouldn't make it into the picture!|
|Descending into a snow-covered Jeungshimsa on our return.|
