Mountain High

Today's Goal.

Mount Watai in central Kyushu.
Marijke is not part of the hike as sadly she suffers from knee problems but luckily the Birds are calling her... so she stays down at mountain bottom level.

The month May is one of the best in Kyushu to go Mountain Up.
Marathon friends Ohara and Noriko are ready for the top... after all it's already 2 weeks since they did an 85 K ultra marathon in Yamaguchi.

Taking a picture of.....


Our lunch stop at the top: 1499m above sea level.

Those white spots down below and in the distance is Steaming Earth. At one location it even is to make electricity, but for us it is used for warming up a Good Soak at an Onsen (hot spring).

Of course once we made our way down hill first.

Hi Noriko, wave to the camera....It's a beautiful day neh...

Hmmm, what's the pass word this time???
