Hiking in Dobongsan

Aside from traveling, hiking is also one of the activity I love to spend with my time with.  I sometimes asked  my husband to hike again but he is quite busy on his job and weekend where the only days he can take a rest from it. He is telling me to hike alone if I want to, but I found hiking alone too boring so I stopped asking him about our next hiking activity.

Almost there, one more trail

Hiking is an outdoor activity that consists of walking in natural environments, often in mountainous or other scenic terrain.  Popular hiking place are often design with hiking trails like in Dobongsan, a mountain in Bukhansan National Park, South Korea.

I am not too sure which peak I summit but looking for similar photos online I climbed Jubong Peak, I climbed alone because my husband can’t make it anymore, I left him and he promised to wait for me  but eventually left me alone after losing patience on waiting.
