Daves Mt. Aso Blog

Mt. Aso Jan 30-2010 126

Thanks for another great day out Amarok - and what a fantastic way to celebrate my birthday! I can`t believe the temperature especially as we did this hike at the same time last year and there was so much snow then.

It was a beautifully sunny day with very little wind so the hike was quite easy and great photo opportunities-especially of me!

We had delicious lunch of chanpon, birthday cake and coffee spiked with brandy - thanks John, Rice, & Mikarin for losing her soul!

A really great way to celebrate my birthday with a great crew and rescue dog - Mana makes it even more fun! After the hike we had a few other parties to attend so it was a 25 hour day - full on!

Hope to see you out on the mountains soon,

阿蘇ツアー

A trip to the Moon!

Hey everyone how was your weekend? We had a great weekend as we headed to Higo to climb up the top peaks of the Aso area. We started our adventure at the Sensuikyo trail head. To make more time for fun on the mountain we took the gondola up to the lookout area Mana had a great time in the Gondola with her favorite toy….Dave!

After reaching the lookout we headed along the rocky trail. Compared to the -16 degree winter adventure we had in January of last year, this time we had great weather with the cold winds of winter only giving us shivers from time to time and the beautiful Kuju mountains floating off in the distance.

We quickly reached the summit of Nakadake and after a short photo shoot we headed off to the higher Takadake. On the way to the lunch hut we found a small patch of snow where Dave and I came up with another great use for our Crazy Creek chairs, Crazy Carpets!! We hopped on our chairs and had a great slide down the slope. Thanks to Mikarin and Rice for the great shots of 2 crazy Gaijin!!

This hike was also a hike of celebration as it was Dave`s Birthday!!! The old man turned 39 and after lunch Rice brought a small cake to celebrate, thanks Rice and HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!!

After lunch and Cake, Dave hid behind some rocks to give Mana some Rescue Dog practice before we headed back down the mountain. This is my favorite part of hiking in Aso, when you hike up you are always looking up to see how much further you have to go while stopping to take in the scenery from time to time. But on the way down you are looking downward with the whole vast landscape unfolding in front of you, completely breathtaking!!

An absolutely great day of hiking and I can`t wait for our next hike coming up this weekend as we head this time to the Kuju Mountians. There are still spots available so drop me an email if you`d like to join us!

Until next time, Happy Trails!
