Lying down in the Mountains


heading off for a few days in the mountains again so I thought I would post some pics from a recent trip sleeping out on top of a mountain to show the obvious reason why...... the views...


All these photos are from a night I spent on top of Mount Kannomine on Osakikamijima, an island in the Inland Sea


Its only 453 meters high, but getting to the top means starting at sea level so its still a good climb.


Unfortunately it was cloudy so the light was not as good as it could have been, but still there were some stunning views over the numerous islands that dot the Inland Sea between Honshu and Shikoku.


The sun set over the Aki Nada chain of islands that I had spent 2 days walking across to get here


Unfortunately it was even cloudier at dawn but still it was an awesome view across the  islands that the Shimanami Kaido now runs across from Ohnomichi to Imabari....
