There's a local 'saying'...

If there is snow on Mt. Asama three times,
then winter has arrived.

I believe this is version 2.5 ...





Thanks for looking,

Casey

it's starting to turn cold... only a few nights below 0°C. On the other hand, Tokyo was 20°C this week. So definitely one must be prepared for temperature swings. Casey...

I enjoy living in a place with a change of seasons...
and a daily walk in the ever-changing environment.

I'm looking for snow this X'mas. Planning for Naeba. ;)

Enjoy 苗場 (Naeba)...

"In addition to the extensive skiing at Naeba itself (two gondolas, 33 ski lifts), there is a third gondola 'Dragondola' connecting the resort to the Tashiro (田代) ski area, which in turn connects to the Mitsumata (三俣) and Kagura (かぐら) ski areas."  — Wikipedia

I love the photo and the adage — both evoke many pleasant, wintry memories!

Mt. Asama is an active volcano...

 
 By: cshimokita : November 24th, 2022-21:45

The rocks you see in the foreground are very small examples of what has been hurled from the mountain... there are a lot of stone fences in the area.

It a bit of an anomaly, but this part of Nagano gets very little snow...

the Northern Alps on the other hand... I am gearing up my laptop to process files from the Canon 5D... I miss using all the filters for effect. Casey .

Looks like a nice place for a morning walk.

It's an excellent location for that morning walk...

the only issue is that it seems to be "mostly" upslope walking \(ツ)/. Casey .
