Not so summer hike
Obon has come and gone. I hope everyone had a good holiday, whatever you got up to. Jon and I had planned to do a 5 day hike of the Daisetsuzan National Park. Everything started well and we made it from Asahidake to the Kurodake camp area in good time and enjoyed some amazing scenery along the way. As we started to pitch our tent the rain started to come. We were advised by the staff at the hut not to continue our hike. This was because the forecast for the next two days was very heavy rain. After the recent tragedy in Daisetsuzan, Jon and myself decide to call it a day on Day 2. Lets hope next year will be better weather and we can complete our challenge.
