Hiking: The Mountains are Still There

Photo above: Even at 2900m and it’s about the smart phone for some.

This is more of a note to myself than anything else. A reminder that the mountains are still there. Calm down, wait for the heat and humidity to subside and for the travel restrictions* to be lifted and then head back out.

Plans haven’t gone to plan this year, but that’s true for everyone. You were supposed to be doing a lot more hiking.

But it’s OK. The mountains aren’t going anywhere and you’ll appreciate them more when you get back out.

The drought is almost over.

Below – a few more photos from my Minami Komagatake hike a few months ago. Taken with the wonderful Lumix G9 micro four thirds camera that isn’t dead and I don’t believe it ever will be.

Life is better in the mountains.

*The governor of Aichi prefecture has requested all residents stay within the prefecture until 24th August.

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.
