Return Journey

or what driving in the clouds at and altitude of 2100+ meters looks like.

while it was like this for the most part along route 292, the sun did peek out briefly when i stopped to climb mount kusatsu-shirane.  just as i had reached the summit, the sun broke through the clouds and shone down on the yugama, giving the turquoise crater lake an ethereal glow.  it looked as if the light was coming from below the water’s surface– really, a sight to behold.

i wonder what adventures this autumn will bring?

夏休みの帰り道。標高2100+mの雲の中のドライブは真っ白い(冷た〜い)綿に覆われているかのよう。ホッカイロが大活躍でした!

国道292の大半はこのような状況が続きました。唯一太陽が顔を出したのが一休みにと草津白根山に寄り道をしたとき。頂上の湯釜の所に辿り着くとともに、太陽の光が雲の間から青緑色の水を照らし、水の中から光を放っているかのように輝かせ...それは美しい光景でした。

今年の秋はどんな冒険が待っているのだろう?

One thought on “Return Journey

  1. Simply beautiful. The crater lake looks the color of iceberg run off. A color you don’t see many places. I bet it was cool riding through the mist.
