A Beautiful Picture of Jukdo

April 9th, 2007 . by Gerry-Bevers

Here is a link to a beautiful picture of Ulleungdo’s neighboring island of Jukdo, which Koreans used to call “Usando” (于山島). The island is 2.2 kilometers off Ulleungdo’s east shore:

    GTOMR,

    I would post it, but it is not my picture to post. It is beautiful, isn’t it?

    When I was a child, I used to imagine owning an secret military base on an island like the ones in the Thunderbirds. I was somehow reminded about that by the Distant View of Jukdo (竹島).
    I don`t care about bases now, but still, to imagine owning an island like this makes me fun.
    Pictures Taken on the Island of Jukdo (竹圖) is so beautiful.
