A flower offering (May 2000).
(Please read this before you copy our photos or text.)

To this day, we have no idea what this bouquet was doing in a tree in Odaesan National Park when we were hiking there in May of 2000. Maybe it's some kind of Shamanic offering. Or perhaps some schoolgirl, fresh from the Spring Formal dance (or some Korean equivalent), parked her corsage while she straightened her dress, and accidentally walked off without it. We'll never know.
