Near the top of Bugaksan.
The weather on Saturday finally was sunny and in the 50s F -- perfect weather for the first hike of the year. We set out from our house to climb Mount Bugaksan and then continued on to Mount Bukhansan, the northernmost mountain in Seoul. It was a long and tiring day, but full of great views of the city and surrounding mountains.
After hiking, we went to the shopping area near Sungshin Women's University, not far from our apartment. It was pretty jarring to be among so many people after spending the day in the mountains. But the galbi (marinated grilled pork wrapped in lettuce leaves) we got there was well worth it.
