Samgak-san  삼각산
Seoul's Triple-Horn Northern Guardian
in the Bukhan-san National Park
View from the east (Ui-dong, the entranceway to Doseon-sa) in June 2006, with the air as
clear as Seoul ever gets.  Five peaks from L to R:  
Nojeok-bong (716m), Manggyeong-dae
(800m),
Baekun-dae (837m), Insu-bong (811m) and (closer) Yeong-bong (604m).
View from the south -- from Bohyeon-bong Peak! -- including the Great
South Gate [
Daenam-mun] of the Bukhan-sanseong Fortress, in 1989.
