Jeongseon (Jeongseon-gun) is a county in Kangwon Province, South Korea. It is famous as the hometown of "Jeongseon Arirang," a traditional Korean folksong. "Arirang" is arguably the most popular and best-known Korean folk song, both inside and outside Korea. Arirang is an ancient native Korean word with no direct modern meaning. 'Ari' means "beautiful" (For example the native Korean word Ƹ means "beautiful", "lovely", "charming") 'Rang' can mean "dear".

It was a perfect weekend with an amazingly clear blue sky and beautifully colored mountains. I will not ever get this clear day in the near future.
