Gendarmes, Kita Alps, originally uploaded by julesberry2001.

Two weeks ago, we said to ourselves that if rainy season hadn't arrived, we'd go and climb the ginormous and snowy Kita Hotakadake (I'd just read Tsubakuro's blog on the subject). The weather called our bluff to such an extent that, amazingly, we couldn't think of a single reason to be lazy, and James is now a pretty patchwork of red and white, due to slapdash application of the factor 40.

Wonderful! Sounds like a charming reason for another photograph.

I thought it was standing on the shoulders of giants. A new take or a different perspective. Hotaka in the snow is wonderful and truly a must-do. But yes, it is easy to become a cooked lobster in that reflected radiation.

Your job in Japan sounds very interesting. I want to read more about that.
