井原山ツアー

A Rainy but fun day in the Fukuoka Mountains

Top_20111031091528.jpg

Last weekend we headed out for a hike to Mt. Ihara. We knew that the weather called for rain but our adventurous spirit`s got the better of us and we headed out despite the forecast.

We reached the trailhead with no problem and the rain was relatively light which made for a kinda mystical feeling as we walked through the fog laced stands of trees.

The original plan was to travel the whole loop going from Mt. Ihara on to Mt. Raizan as well, but from noon the weather was supposed to worsen so we decided to only go as far as Ihara. Due to the shorter route we decided to do a bit of exploring around Ihara so we headed down the Fukuoka side of the mountain to check out the huge pillars of Quartz that is characteristic to this area.

Due to weathering the rocks look an unremarkable brown color but if you scuff off the brown the beautiful white the quartz is revealed, and some of these rocks are huge!

After exploring I setup the tarp to give us a bit of protection from the rain while we had nice relaxing lunch before heading back down to finish of a really fun day. On the way back we also came along a couple of cute critters, a mountain crab and also a Japanese fire belly newt or アカハライモリ in Japanese, but don’t try to eat him because they are poisonous!

Check back in another couple days for the report from our latest adventure in the rain, our trip to Bogatsuru in Oita.

Talk to you soon!
