Here's a shot of the hills.
Again, we were able to rent snowsuits and equipment. We both wanted to give snowboarding another try and were pleasantly surprised at how much easier it was this time around. I decided to just wear my own coat and rent the pants. Unfortunately, this time around we didn't get the knee and butt pads for protection.
The 8 hours grew pretty long and my legs felt like rubber after awhile so I had to stop.
But there was no stopping Mark! There he goes!
He even tackled this crazy hill that had 180 turns.
The scenery really was beautiful. Coming from the flat midwest, it's still breathtaking to see all these mountains on a daily basis.
We spent the night in an old-fashioned Korean country house. The rooms were tiny and there was a little Korean grandmother who was the inn-keeper. We all slept on the floor on mats, but not before Yuni cooked us some dakdoritang (spicy chicken soup) -- 덝도리탕.
We're really going to miss these girls. Yuni and Kerry are taking new jobs at other schools. And Ellen (on the right below) is going to Australia and New Zealand in March to study English.
Anyway, it was a fun trip and Mark and I can foresee some skiing/snowboarding trips in our future once we return to the States! :)
