The Mountain Under Construction
Subway: Jeungsan (Line 6)
Distance hiked: 417.52 m
The entire neighborhood is called Jeungsan, so it takes me a while to find the actual mountain. My entrance was a very narrow opening at the end of a street, and a group of construction workers greeted me. I brush past them and am very relieved to find a trail. I rejoice when I see a dog. Further ahead there is a very tall statue of what I presume to be a civil official from the Joseon dynasty. I begin to think I am about to undergo an adventure when I am stopped at the sight of construction going on. The scene is just as the photograph says. At this point, I cannot go any further and I leave, buying myself a popsicle to make up for my disappointment. Bah.
