It was a rainy and eerily-foggy October 10th. When the rain let up for a while and the fog lifted, it looked like this:
By now, a general rule for hiking that I've learned is this: "The harder the conditions, the better the views".
The views over the foggy valleys you see here are an example. Without the misery of that day's hike, the views would've been...uhh...less dramatic, or less vivid, or something. I remember reaching this little overview area, which I think is named Sambongsan [삼봉산] or Deogyusambong [덕유삼봉]. The view hit me with the force of a bucket of ice water dumped on the head on a sizzling August day.
Note: This was along the cross-country Baekdu-Daegan Trail (백두대간) in Korea, which I've been hiking since mid-September. It was along the trail northeast of a place called Bbae-Jae ("Bone Pass", 빼재), and east of Deogyusan National Park (덕유산), and southwest of 소사곡개 (Sosa Pass).
