Nakasendo Waypoints #47




Racing a typhoon
To Ontake's sacred peak,
As the sky presses in.


On the turntable:  Beach Boys, "Endless Summer"
On the nighttable:  Donald Keene, "Chronicles of my Life"

Thanks for the link! That looks right up my alley. I'll be checking on that often.

I wish i, cjw was still around. I miss his hiking exploits in the mountains. Whatever happened to him?

He's in New Zealand, but will come back to hike (and write about) Japan.
