Up to the high woodlands
I was worried all week that I might get rained off. The forecasts had been all doom and gloom since the day after I booked my days off (typically), but in the end it was the unseasonable heat and the sun that gave me problems. There was some rain to be sure, but the soaring mid-day temperatures and high humidity gave me both a summer-like sweat bath and even got a little sunburn. Even so, I managed to get a few nice shots on my walk. Here they are:
It's a scramble near the top, ropes and everything, but the view as always is totally worth it.
Echoes of the forest walks back home. In sharp contrast to the forest I found later in the walk.
This reminds me of some 'vista' or other.
If you thought, like I did, that this was a photo of a lovely old wooden footbridge, you'd be wrong. Amazingly (not that amazing here in Japan, to be honest), it's made of concrete.
The colour jumped out at me here. There was nothing but greens all around.
Pretty late-autumn meadow.
