Fall tumbles down the mountains

August 05, 2009  •  Leave a Comment

Here’s a photo from a trip I took several years ago.  At the time it was my first switch to digital, with a Nikon CoolPix 4600 – a small point and shoot digital.  I’ll share more photos from here, later.

Meanwhile, here’s a photo of the fall colors at Daisetsuzan National Park, which is worth the trek.  In fact, for many Japanese, it is a regular tradition for fall.   To go up the mountain one rides a ski lift part of the way up the mountain, then hikes the final several hundred meters to the top.   When I did this, I was in my late 30s – you’d think I’d be relatively fit.  I thought so.  But seniors more than double my age were passing me on the trail, and enjoying their lunch when I arrived at the top, huffing and puffing.

The view, however, as you can see, was worth the effort.
