Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visit and the comments. It is not always enjoyable to hike in such conditions, but it makes you appreciate the force and power of nature. You travel into the back country prepared and you will be fine. If you keep your face and eyes protected, it is not that bad. I have always enjoyed getting to a high place and turning my face into the wind to feel the cold sting of snow flakes hitting my cheeks, chin and nose. It makes me feel part of the mountain. Take care and have a great day. Cheers, Rich

Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visit and the comment. The ice forms early in the winter when there are still warm days to melt the new snow and cause the icicles. The snow is not deep on the trail yet so you can walk to the high lakes without difficulty. Cheers, Rich
Muy impresionante! -like- Saludos, Cornelia
Greetings Christian, Thanks for the visit and the comment. Most of the pagodas in Japan are maintained very well. It seems hard to keep the red paint fresh and bright. Cheers, Rich.
Greetings J-ryu, Thanks for the visit and the comment. It is still fairly early in the morning at the lake so the shore is in deep shadow. Cheers, Rich
