Jirisan Mountain is South Korea's second highest mountain, only after Mt. Halla on Jeju Island. As the autumn leaves began to hit their peak, a few friends and I decided to journey out towards the mountain and explore the crimson red maples. However, as we reached higher elevations, the leaves seemed more dead. Thus, these photos are what we could scrap together from a few days after Jirisan's peak.
