Fall in Sapporo

On the 1st day of the Japan trip, Kazu asked us if we wanted to go for a hike on this local mtn outside of Sapporo. We were all pretty jet lagged so it seemed like the perfect thing to do.

I don't think we could have picked a better day of the year to hike around.

Once we got to this point of the hike Kazu told us you weren't allowed to snowboard at this resort. I guess its the Alta of Japan?

After finishing the 2 mile hike back down, we came across this sign...Kazu told us it was a warning for hikers not to use the trail since there had been a bunch of bears spotted in the last couple weeks, we had taken a different trail to the top and missed it on the way up...glad we made it;)
