- Big, deep realization I had looking at this sunset. It really hit me right there and then. How could I have missed it up until that moment? . . . I need to get a steadicam, or one of them steadicam mounts for my phone. 😅😅😅 . . . Kamikochi sunset for the books! #chubumountainsnationalpark #chubumountains #chogatake #kamikochi #hotaka #japanalps #kitaalps #hidamountains #nagano #japan #hike #hiking #trek #trekking #mountain #japantravel #traveljapan #travel #outdoors #getoutside #autumn #fall #snow #sunset

- The view from the highest spot on the trail from which I decided to turn back. I climbed this the third day I was in Kamikochi, a second hike to reach another peak. I was close to the finish line, too. The top of active volcano Yakedake (second photo) was only a couple hundred meters away. But the looming rain, which turned out to be a storm in another part of Japan, and the steep, precarious trails augmented by steel ladders and ropes, where one wrong step could easily spell serious trouble, just did not feel right for this solo hiker. So I turned back. It's very hard to do that. Decide, for one's own safety, to turn back. But solo hikers like me, I think, need that protocol. Something doesn't feel right? Turn back. Climb the mountain another day. I'm still trying to make it so I assign an equal amount of achievement to both reaching the finish line and to turning back for safety. It's a process. #chubumountainsnationalpark #chubumountains #chogatake #kamikochi #hotaka #japanalps #kitaalps #hidamountains #nagano #japan #hike #hiking #trek #trekking #mountain #japantravel #traveljapan #travel #outdoors #getoutside #autumn #fall #snow #yakedake #mountyake #mtyake

- The ever present dwarf bamboo in the forest floor of Kamikochi. Climbing up, they're sort of my reminder that I have ways to go up the mountain. Which can be a bummer. Climbing down though, once I start seeing these, I knew I was close to the finish line. Which is good, but also sad. Which makes me want to do another hike, and another, and another. #chubumountainsnationalpark #chubumountains #chogatake #kamikochi #hotaka #japanalps #kitaalps #nagano #japan #hike #hiking #trek #trekking #mountain #japantravel #traveljapan #travel #outdoors #getoutside #autumn #fall #snow #hidamountains

- Beautiful, I say, beautiful day. Hiked three, four hours down from Chogatake back to the valley. Still had some energy, still early in the day, and it'll be a damn shame to waste all this sun. So I made a detour, took a longer more winding route, and explored the more popular spots along the Azusagawa River. And for a very popular, easy-access spot like Myojin Pond, I only needed to walk a few meters away from the entrance, find a big boulder to sit on, and take all of this in. It was a good day. #chubumountainsnationalpark #chubumountains #chogatake #kamikochi #hotaka #japanalps #hidamountains #kitaalps #nagano #japan #hike #hiking #trek #trekking #mountain #japantravel #traveljapan #travel #outdoors #getoutside #autumn #fall #snow #myojinike #myojinpond
