Top of the World Part 2

Although the photographs I uploaded in this post were taken at the bottom of the mountain, we still felt like we're on top of the world... The snapshots below were taken at the Seorak San Park (San is mountain in Korean language).

We missed some spots due to locations but overall our nature trekking was an absolute fun and stunning.
This one was taken where the map was.
This is the entrance gate to the big buddha statue.
Here's the Buddha Statue

Here's some of those neat structures in the buddha's place

Here's my darling wife and daughter on the way to the bus, they look tired but still smiling

Korea is a beautiful country. That's why they call her the land of the morning calm. I hope someday Korea will be reunited and become one again just like Germany. Your photos are simply fantastic. I always love to see your bonding moments in your photos. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Arlene said...

Thanks for sharing all these beautiful nature photos, John! great for LATSOF!

That's one huge korean buddha over there. Mountain in chinese is "shan" i guess some of their words are identical.

Happy weekend to you and the family!

Liz said...

Masshole Mommy said...

Wow, what an amazing adventure. I hope your kids know how lucky they are that they got to experience that :)

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

I had so much fun looking at all of your photos, thank you so much for sharing. I don't travel nearly as much as I'd like to so I could spend hours viewing photos of places others go. Thanks again for my virtual vacation :).

Amy Ditmore said...

That statue is beautiful, and really big :). I would love to be able to go and take pictures there. Super jealous :)

This is such a cool cultural adventure. I hope to do something like this one day. That archetecture is just amazing!

Elizabeth O. said...

I’m planning to go to Korea next month. When I do, I’ll definitely visit this!

Roselynn Mercedes said...

Everything looks so much fun with the whole family. It's a shame that you didn't get a chance to see the waterfalls or the temples, but I imagine there is so much to see it's impossible to see everything in one trip.

Kori Tomelden said...

That is an absolutely gorgeous park. I'd love to be able to see it in person someday.

Sara-Jayne Jones said...

What a gorgeous place to be with the family! I'm sorry you never got to see the waterfalls, I would have loved that too!

Cherri Megasko said...

Your photos are very nice. I haven't had a chance to enjoy Korea yet. We did stop there for a few hours on our way to Vietnam, but didn't have enough time to get out and explore. Maybe next time!

Natalie H said...

Oh these pictures of Seorak San Park look awesome. Looks like your family had a lot of fun.

Yona Williams said...

The entrance and Big Buddha statue looks like an amazing photo opportunity to have. I wish we had something like this where I lived.

Kendall Rayburn said...

What a gorgeous place! That must have been quite the experience for you!

CourtneyLynne said...

I love seeing all the different places people live and travel. Makes me wish I could speak every language and spend a year everywhere. So many great places in the world.
