Way up high over Seoul

At 1,575 feet above sea level, the Namsan Seoul Tower is the first tower-type tourism spot in Korea with views as far as the eye can see and pictured here its shadow extends well beyond the base into the surrounding park and forest in Seoul, Republic of Korea, March 18, 2017. A group of 60 U.S. service members assigned to Key Resolve 2017 hiked the steep hill hoping to get a glimpse of the ROK’s capital on a first-ever tour to Seoul where they experienced the Korean culture first-hand. The tower is Korea’s first general radio wave tower. It was built to promote the future of broadcasting and the tourism industry. It combines a broadcast tower and an observatory which embodies traditional Korean design. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Benjamin W. Stratton)
