From Okutama to Musashi-Itsukaichi




I tried to run from Okutama station to Musashi-itsukaichi area in this day.
I failed to do so because of remaining snow at the top of Nokogiri mountain and Oodake mountain. I was stupid enough not to bring crampons. 

Leaving Hatonosu Hotel at 5:30, catching train around 6am.

I saw someone who walked before me had a couple of doggies with them. I could tell from the footsteps on the snow.
I wonder how they could take doggies with them, since the course had occasional ladder climbing. I can see if the dogs are toy breed, but the foot print clearly indicated they were bigger breed.

In my plan, I was to go to the Bazukari Mt.
However, considering the fatigue from fighting slippery ground, my legs are too tired to walk a couple more of peaks. 
Therefore, I decided to come down earlier, like below.


Mitsumine Shrine
