This image of the island of Chejudo is a composite of two infrared
photographs. The city of Cheju can be easily seen as a blue-gray blotch on the central
north coast. The center of the island is dominated by Mount Hallasan, a dormant volcano
which last erupted in 1007 AD. Many lava flows can be seen radiating from Mount Hallasan,
as well as numerous small cinder cones scattered all over the interior of the island.
Mount Hallasan, at 6,400 feet is the highest peak in South Korea. Chejudo is a favorite
vacation spot. North is to the top.
