Early Fall


PhotoBucket has been updated. The temperature is dropping and the wood stove is operational. 
The fall colors are visible on Yufu-dake, but it's not as noticeable as the other areas in Japan. If the sun is positioned at a certain angle, the volcano turns red.

Susuki dominates most of the open areas in Tsukahara. Sunset is a dramatic time. The deer are bugling, the susuki are casting a silver glow, and the volcano turns a tinge of red. The thunderstorms are gone. The fall weather is perfect for engaging in outdoor activities.
 
Paragliders enjoy the nearby hill. According to rumor, they pay 10,000 yen per person per day to fly off that hill. I was very interested in paragliding until I heard the cost.
 
 
Lucky and Kiley are entertained by these strange looking birds (paragliders).
 
If you look closely, the air is full of tiny insects. This photo was taken in the old part of Tsukahara. I'm glad we don't have this problem in the highlands.


 
The autumn flowers are in abundance all over Tsukahara. It is an absolutely beautiful time of year.   George
