Today’s Olle Image
“Into the forest” along Route 11. Posted to our academy group by Lee Seong-gwan and snapped on July 30.
We have a further high of 33°c with a little bit of cloud and sunshine in the sky. A gentle to moderate wind (5-4 m/s) is going to blow north again and get weaker as the day continues.
Overall it will be a HOT SUMMER DAY on the trail. It is not the best time of year for walking. If you really want to then please prepare.

140 jellyfish stings this year… Sea bathers ‘attention’
Since 11 designated beaches opened on the 1st of last month, there have been 140 cases of jellyfish stings in the beaches until recently.
In response to this, Jeju Island said that there were no serious patients among jellyfish stings, but that the number of visitors to the beach was increasing due to the full-fledged summer season.
The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and the National Institute of Fisheries Science issued a Nomura Jellyfish advisory last month.
Jeju is a tropical island in the heat wave
According to the Jeju Regional Meteorological Administration, currently, Jeju has been experiencing heat waves for six days in all areas except mountainous areas, and the peak temperature during the day has risen to 33 degrees, similar to that of the average year.
In addition, during the week, the tropical night phenomenon with a minimum temperature of 25 degrees Celsius over night was observed for a week, and Seogwipo and Alpine were observed for four consecutive days.
