Last Monday and Tuesday it was still weather like this:
But then on Friday,
a warm weather front came to town.
So, quickly the hiking shoes got out and off we went to
Mt Kanondake in Imajuku, a mere 20 minute drive.
Start of the trail, ample parking, a vending machine, a toilet
walking aids and more important: a mountain spring supplying fresh and tasty drinking water to fill the flask.
At the top, facing West, Itoshima countryside.
Down there is Fukuoka.
So near, so far.
Hakata Bay with Nokonoshima in the center.
That was a pleasant 3 hour hike.
Isn't Fukuoka a wonderful place to live at?
Town, sea, mountains. All nearby.
And oh boy,
Do i smell Spring....?
