Beep, beep, beep...My alarm is telling me it's time to wake up. It's 3:30am. I force myself up even though it's still dark out. I've still got an hour hike before I reach the summit. Guided by my headlamp, I make my way through the dense forest before emerging at the top and I can finally look out over the land. The morning light is just starting to scare away the darkness below. The sky starts to turn dark purple, then blue and finally a deep orange. It's a beautiful sunrise and for a moment I forget about everything else as I am engulfed in the scenery.
One of my favorite things to do is to be outside in nature. I have spent the last 3 years living abroad and traveling in South Korea and parts of Asia. While I was there I hiked many of the South Korean mountains and traveled to many remote areas. The following images are the result of my wanderlust, time and dedication. I hope you enjoy.
