It's a beautiful day, so I'm going to hit the mountains. This last week wasn't so cold so I guess the snow has melted quite a bit. I think I might try out a different trail. Nah ... It's a beautiful day, so I want to go somewhere with a view. Once again I head for Sugiyama.
I sat on this rock taking a rest and while looking at the view and mountain stream thought, ”water is a mysterious thing.” You can see it but you can't.
I've lived in Japan a long time, but saw a Japanese squirrel for the first time today. There aren't any squirrels in my country New Zealand. It's a country where there were no mammals before man came. The squirrel moved like a bat out of hell, crossing the road from left to right.Can you see it? I slowed the video right down (x8). It comes down the bank onto the road on the right at the 3 second mark and leaves the road entering the bamboo grove at the 8 second mark.
