After returning from Busan I only had two days of school before having a day off on Wednesday for election day. Megan, Nate, and I opted for hiking on day off, which meant we had a rather early morning. Our destination was Songnisan National Park in Boeun, so our trip included three different buses. Our travel route went a little like this: Jeomchon-->Sangju-->Boeun-->Songnisan.
At the entrance of Songnisan there was a temple along with a HUGE Buddha statue and a large pagoda. The pagoda was unlike anything I've seen in Korea, and actually reminded me of something I'd expect to see in China.
