Today must have been a good day for viewing fall colors because there were throngs of cars and motor bikes snaking up the mountain road to Mount Bandai area. We had to fight our way to a parking lot and on the trail we were with hundreds of people walking down to the river.
The senior citizens here in Japan are so sprightly and energetic and they manuevour their way down the steep trail ever so well. When we got to the river bed, they walked on rocks and scrambled down rock faces. They amazed us.
The colors were so awesome, oranges, burnt umber, browns and reds. Dave took the new header picture I just put up. There were some fantastic pictures from the lot Dave took with his Olympus E 410. I love the water pictures he took on slow setting. The pictures I took with my Olympus SP 350 were not as clear and the colors were not as bright and I kept running out of batteries! Grrrr…
The fall colors might peak next week and then totally gone. The mountain side looked so beautiful.
I uploaded some pictures on flikr. Check it out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/13044535@N04/sets/72157608179174789/
