#일상을여행으로 약 두달여만에 다시 찾아간 하늘공원 . 갈때마다 느끼는 거지만 이 길은 햇빛이 강한 날, 낮에 가면 절대 실패하지 않는 곳이에요 . 여기저기서 들리는 새소리 곤충소리 그리고 바로 옆 대로를 달리는 차소리가 어우러져 꽤나 마음을 평온하게 해 주는 곳입니다 모기한테 헌혈해주고 오는 건 함정이지만요😂 . 생각보다 하늘공원의 이 길을 잘 모르시는 분들이 많은 것 같아요 . 계단으로 올라가지 마시고 셔틀차량이 이동하는 경로를 따라가시다보면 메타세콰이어길로 가는 이정표를 만나보실 수 있을거에요☺️ . . #discoverwithalpha #사진에알파가되다 #a7m3 #sel2470gm
