I've loved, I've hated, I've cried, I've died inside.
I've resurrected but don't neglect that I've modified.
I'm stronger, faster, better than ever before.
And everything I've been through can honestly assure,
I'm no less, no more. I'm just a man.
- Logic, 'Just a Man'
~ Early Autumn Dusk, Seoraksan National Park, South Korea, Sept 30, 2012 ~ In late Summer I road-walked from Busan to Sokcho over 13 sun-baked days. I could see the gnarled peaks of Seoraksan to the west & swore to return & explore them. This I did not long afterwards (this time coming north by bus), hiking the glorious trails resplendent with autumn maples, even stealth-camping without a tent atop Korea's 3rd-highest peak, Daecheong-Bong (1,708m). A spectacular corner of the country.
