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 . ...  

about 10 minutes walk... most anyone else could walk it faster \(ツ)/

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...

Snow galore :)

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

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." — Wikipe... 

Mt. Asama is an active volcano...

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. Casey .

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 .

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

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

Here's the same scene one day later...
