With the holidays here I haven’t ridden the bike in the two weeks since classes ended. But just before they did, I took a Sunday and headed off to climb a mountain in Gifu. I’ve taken a notion for hiking recently and I’ve been up a couple of mountains in the last three weeks. I’m very interested in hiking up Mount Ena which is quite close to here, but it’s a serious climb. For a bit of practice I went to Ena and hiked to the summit of an adjoining mountain, Fujimidai. It’s not so tall, about 1,700 meters above sea level, but it’s a good hike. I took a cable car to the trail head and then it took a couple of hours of hard hiking to get to the summit. The bike just got me there and home again. Here are a few pics of the day.
All geared up for the run.
