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.
