Yesterday Ike and me went for jaunt through the back woods/mountains of Iijima. We managed to get fairly high up to where low clouds were rolling through the trees around us. Saturday saw a lot of rain, so the river and streams cutting through the mountains were fast and full! At one point we had to barefoot through a small stream that threatened to obstruct our path. Great fun, but bloody cold! The trees packing the mountains were a really bright rust colour too. Amazing.
