Namhamsan Fortress


This weekend is the Korean holiday Chuseok. It a major holiday for them, similar to our Thanksgiving. Since a lot of the workers on base are Korean, Monday was a day off of school and work! Dan went on a bike ride in the morning and rode up the Namhamsan mountain and thought the boys would love doing a little hiking in the afternoon! We found directions and went off on an adventure!

Right at the entrance there is a Korean rock garden. I just think these are so cool to look at!

Cade found the perfect walking stick!
 Looking for bugs


 Looking through the holes in the fortified wall.














 We found this little door, but unfortunately it was locked.


 I loved how the trees were all slanted, not sure if the picture captures it
Most of the time we were hiking along the wall and then it opened up to this area called a Battlement. The mountain is full of hiking trails and we could never accomplish it all in a day. I'd love to go back and find one of the Buddhist temples that are settled deep in the mountain valley.
 Taking a break.
It feels like you're so far from the city, but once we were up high you could see the sea of highrises just below us.
The boys did a great job hiking, much better than I anticipated! We'll be going back here for sure.

Enjoyed it, but was a pain to push the big ol' stroller with the two little ones.
