Tag Archives: totem poles

When you fall off a horse, the best thing to do is to get back on again. Yesterday, I hiked the mighty Gwanaksan in the south of Seoul. Along the way, I saw these awesome jangseung, or Korean totem poles with very expressive faces.


I smiled when one reminded me of a Y chromosome.


It’s caterpillar season, and there were plenty of them on totem poles, rocks, or hanging from a tree.
