A bucket of sticks. Yep, one of my favorite things I’ve seen. As we wrapped up a hike on Gwanaksan, this was tied around a tree at the bottom of the mountain. I loved that fellow hikers could place their trusty walking sticks in the bucket for the next round of trekkers headed up for the day. Having a munchkin who is a collector of all things wood (we have a stick collection by my front door), this was truly endearing to me. We, however, had to ride the subway home with our sticks so they could be added to the collection (by order of the stick master).
