2013年冬山九州

The last couple of adventures and the fun still to come!

Hey everyone! As usual I’m late with the updates again!!! Sorry!!! As I said before, Facebook is just so easy!! If you haven’t liked the Amarok Facebook page yet, please do as the updates with come much more often!

Anyway I wanted to bring you all up to date with our latest adventures and let you know about the ones coming up that you can still get in on. I also want to let you all know about some big changes that will be happening in the next few months.

First the updates on where we’ve been and what we did;

Hiko San Shioji Taki hike
Our first hike of the year took place on January 4th when we headed off in to the sacred mountain area of Mt. Hiko deep in Fukuoka Prefecture. Once again we were in search of the frozen waterfall known as Shiojitaki. The past few years our main winter destination was Nansho ga taki near Fukuoka city and only found this waterfall last year but am so glad we did as it’s a spectacular sight to see. The days after we went the temperature rose and the waterfall crumbled away so we were very happy to see it before it disappeared for another year.

Kuju Winter hike
Our next adventure took place in the Kuju Highlands of Oita were we went for our annual winter camp at the Bogatsuru campsite. We headed up from Chojabaru along the Ame ga Ike route and enjoyed the steady climb through the snow which glistened beautifully in the sun. After setting up camp we just kicked back to enjoy being outdoors before getting ready for an onsen and an early nights sleep. The reason for going to ground so early is because we had to get up early.

Todays adventure was to wake up and climb to the top of Mt. Daisen before sunrise to enjoy the view of the “Goraiko” from the summit. We made it to the top with only about 10 minutes to spare but were rewarded with an absolutely beautiful sunrise. The air was so clear that we could see the surrounding mountains so clearly, it was truly a sight I will never forget and I was so glad that we made the early morning effort!!

Nanshogataki
Before the end of the winter season we just had to go to our regular stomping ground of Nansho ga taki and once again we made it just in time to see the frozen sheet of ice before it hibernates for another year. There were quite a few people on the trail and on the way down we came upon a rescue in progress which left me shaking my head for a number of reasons and something that could take up a whole blog post itself. If you want to know more about it ask me the next time we meet.

Aso Takadake and Nakadake hike
Our last intended winter hike was to Aso in Kumamoto on February 11th but as you can see from the pictures, no snow so not much of a winter hike but still a great day just the same!! A few years ago we came here around the same time of year and found a ton of “Muhyo” and -16 degree temperatures but this time I was eventually hiking with my sleeves rolled up! As always when in Aso we had to be careful about the fumes from the volcano but we ran in to no problem at all and had a great day on the moon like landscape.
