Uam 2013 003Winter is my favorite time of the year in Korea; especially when it snows. Having lived in Korea since 1990, I have seen my share of snow in Seoul, Daejeon, and my first winter wonderland at Mt. Sorak in 1991.

December was the snowiest month I have experienced in Daejeon as well as Korea all those years.

Uam 2013 004On New Year’s Day, another couple of inches was dumped on Daejeon and with the temperature not too cold, I trudged through the snow over to Uam Historical Park (a little over a mile from where I live) to take some winter photos.

I’m glad I did.
