Deoksugung Palace (2)

Here are some more shots of the wonderful Deoksugung Palace in Seoul, South Korea. I don't remember the details of each building.
Here are a couple of photos looking in - clearly it's a ceremonial building of some kind.
Everything is decorated and well-kept.
Looking more closely brings out more detail.
And even more.

Deoksugung Palace (1)

After Japan, we spent a few days in Seoul, South Korea, visiting friends, family, and of course various sights around the city.
According to Wikipedia, Deoksugung Palace (λ•μˆ˜κΆ) is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty.
It became a royal residence in 1592, after other palaces were destroyed.
Restoration work is ongoing, and it's a must-see sight.
The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, in the middle of this huge city.
I'll show more of this grand palace next week.

Mount St. Helens, 1986 (1)

When we were there back in 1986 the mountain was fogged in, so all we could see was the destruction from the famous 1980 eruption.
