the previous page.   
Here are photos of the
Pi-bawi or "Bloody Rock", a large flat-but-water-worn embedded
boulder on the side of the Rang-cheon Stream, taken by Roger Shepherd in 2009.

This is a small but significant part of Jiri-san's (and Namwon City's) extensive legacies of warfare

and patriotic national defense, the presence of which enhances the deep spiritual traditions.
Up-Close.  Those natural reddish colorings are legendarily said to be stains of Ajibaldo's blood
Looking north across the Rang-cheon Stream to National Highway 24,
where you can see the monument standing on the roadside.
The monument erected on May 31st 1995 by the Namwon Cultural Office,
whose top reads simply "Hwang-san Dae-cheop gwa Pi-bawi"
-- the Bloody Rock of the Great Victory at Hwang-san.
Looking south from the highway, over the Bloody Rock to the house somebody built in that lovely place.
