Forested Wat Umong

15 Comments

Hello! Oh, it feels good being back here after a few months … I’ve missed posting.

My first photos for the new year … of the forested temple, Wat Umong. A regular hangout on hot sunny afternoons with attractions like chickens and roosters, fish feeding, statues, winding leaf-strewn paths, and dharma messages pinned to trees. Rainbow Eyes loves tearing through the tunnels and peeking at Buddha statues in alcoves beneath the chedi.

Happy 2013! May the new year of the Snake unwind with wisdom, abundance and LOVE!
