South Korean SoBo hiker commemorates 2014 Ferry Tragedy

A SoBo thru hiker from South Korea, trail name Baram 304 passed by my hiker oasis, just as a PCTA trail crew started a one-day project from my property.

The hiker explained that he was dedicating his hike to commemorate a ferry disaster in 2014 that deeply affected him, along with many other South Koreans. The banner he has carried in his hike includes pictures of the many students who died in the tragedy. More info at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinking_of_MV_Sewol.
