Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak – Jeju Island, Korea

Saturday, September 8

Day 5 of Joni’s visit

Saturday was our first day on Jeju Island. We woke up at 4am to travel to the other side of the island to see the sunset. What we didn’t realize was that once we got there, we’d have to climb to the top of a dormant volcano to see the view. We sent Dave ahead and Joni and I took our time on the 8 bajillion steps to the top. None of us were prepared for a hike, Joni more so than the rest of us. She was wearing a long dress and sandals. Oh… and did I mention it was raining? Yep. All that work and we couldn’t even see the sunrise anyway.

Joni took a tumble. She was okay.

  1. LOL. Well, it sure was an adventure then! Still beautiful… in a soggy sort of way. Tim and I went on the White Rock Lake studio tour this last weekend. Beautiful weather and some fun stops, except I was looking at a metal workers junk metal – on uneven ground and my sandal broke! (ok, it was good, interesting junk… like old rail road pins, etc.) I took off my sandals and walked barefoot in their backyard to see their art. Then Tim and I looked for a Kohl’s nearby and I bought new sandals.

    The temps must have been good or you wouldn’t have trucked up the volcano!

  2. This sounds like our trip up to Victoria Peak in HK. Thankfully we were on a bus, but the fog was so thick, I kept thinking we were going to careen over the edge. And of course once we got there…the fog totally obliterated the supposed “best view in the city.” Well so much for that! *grumble grumble*

    Haha, I love Joni’s face in that bottom picture. She’s like, “what are you doing? Stop taking pictures and help me up!” LOL
