Suraksan, not to be confused with Soraksan, (which we visited earlier this Fall) was a beautiful and somewhat unanticipated day hike. We set out to hike a well trodden trail in Northern Seoul one Sunday afternoon and after being turned away from the mountain (who knew that dogs were not allowed on mountains, go figure) we ended up on this alternative hike so close to our old home in Seoul.Along with Mike and Kris, and what felt like every Korean in Seoul, we rambled on up to the top for a great view, a delicious melon popsicle and the discovery that Buddhists first invented the monkey trio: see-no-evil, hear-no-evil, and speak-no-evil, who is, I'm sorry to say, missing in action.
