The overcast day made it very quiet and peaceful. We only saw a few other hikers and a couple of mountain bikers as well. It was a very nice day to hike.
The area where we took the first few photos was not too much higher than the fog hanging over the city but was just what I had hoped we would see. It was like a blanket over the city.
Not much farther up the mountain, we saw a sign reminding people that we should not shout “Yahoo!” This used to be a normal thing to do when hikers reached a nice overlook. It is bothersome to the animals that live in the forest and to other hikers. So, please remember, it is not ok to do that.
Near the top, we were able to look into the park and see the connecting mountains. All I can say is “WOW!”
I hope we can find a day during the spring to get up there when the sun is shining across the city and the beauty of the park. If you happen to see us, please say Hi, maybe we can sit down together and share some snacks and stories of your hikes in Apsan park or surrounding areas. I look forward to seeing you on the mountain!
