Colors of Chichibu

once down on the chichibu side, i made my way over to the urayama dam.  fall foliage was just reaching its peak there with clusters of red, yellow and orange, bright among the evergreens.  the view from the dam was simply stunning– the town of chichibu could be seen in one direction; the dam lake with mountains flanking it, on the other.

along the road that runs by the dam, there was a sign that said “don’t feed the monkeys” and “beware of bears, etc.” even as i wondered if i was really that far into the wild, i heard vicious screeching and tussling from the nearby woods, as if a fight had broken out among the wild monkeys.  as much as i would have liked to have gotten a glimpse, i was just as happy not to have to outrun a group of angry monkeys down the steep, winding road.
