The weather report here said there had been several days of heavy snow in the mountains outside of Kyoto, so I decided to go investigate for myself. I packed up my snowshoes and tarp (shelter for lunch) and headed out for a long day-hike.
Deep powder makes for tiring hiking. Beautiful though!
Spot the guy on the summit? The sky started to brighten up as the sun tried to peak through the clouds on the left.
My favorite shot of the trip. Finally saw some sunlight toward the end of the hike. A great day in a snow-white world. I'm planning to do an overnighter in the area sometime this winter, so more pictures to come!
