It was a long course, but not physically demanding. Walking in darkness was a little scary, but I would enjoy it more in the future. The merrily chirping of birds in early morming welcomed us. We had several small peaks, which provided us great scenic views. At the first shelter, we had long-waited breakfast and refreshments. A small piece of samgyepsal pork gave me a little more energy boost, which made hiking more pleasurable and easier. After getting to the 2nd shelter, the temperature felt a bit chilly for summer weather, but good. Getting to Cheonwangbong peak wasn't that difficult as imagined. On the way down to the base, we were able to see streams up close and observe plants and other enchanting rocks. Sunny even took a short nap on the way down (ha ha ^^*). Jirisan mountain, which is called mother mountain in Korea, is so expansive that I think I only touched the tip of her nose^^. Thank you Jirisan, thank you Mr. Kim and others who made this hiking successful and fun.

I just found out that my Grandma lives 30 minutes from Jirisan. Since I have not seen her in a year and a half this would be an excellent opportunity to trek down and visit her. I was wondering if it would be possible if I took an alternate form of transportation to Jirisan and met you guys there if that would be fine.

You must deposit the money within 48 hours of RSVPing or your name will be removed from the list. If you RSVP'd more than 2 days ago and haven't paid, your RSVP has been changed to "NO" to allow those on the waiting list a chance to go. You may then sign up again and be placed on the waiting list for a chance to attend
