Last weekend, a friend of mine and I were planning to visit another mountain, but after having some unexpected trouble, we headed to Ochudo, the hiking trail in Mt. Fuji, instead, to see autumn leaves of larch trees. We enjoyed the spectacular view, following the beautiful scenery in Mt. Asama in the previous weekend. My friend said that the leaves are not thick enough and the leaf color is not as bright as usual, probably because of salt damage by the recent typhoon. If it really can be more spectacular, I definitely want to see it.
本当は他の山へ出かける予定だったのが、ちょっとした手違いで出発が遅れてしまったため、急遽変更して富士山のお中道と呼ばれるところに落葉松を見に行ってきました。先週の浅間山に引き続き、素晴らしい落葉松を見ることができました。それでも一緒に行った友人曰く、今年は台風による塩害のため、例年に比べると葉が少なく、色づきも良くないそうです。これ以上に素晴らしい紅葉。それはそれで興味がわきます。
