Mountaineers climb a long and winding trail on Mount Cheongtae in Hoengseong County, Gangwon Province. The tracks left by their lantern lights seem to show the past eventful year. 2013 is the Year of the Snake under the Chinese zodiac. The zigzagging of a snake might look like slow detouring but could be the wisest way of advancing. The incoming government to be launched in the New Year is hoped to care for all classes of society, even if it means taking a winding detour.
