The upper hillside of Mt. Niseko Annupri was covered with rocks. It seemed to be so hard for plants to take roots this area. But some parts of the surface were covered with plants peculiar to highland.
Looking back the trail we crawled up, I felt continuing to step forward is so important for us human beings. "Continuing means power", I thought.
The landscape from the peak of the mountain was so nice and refreshed us. Lower peaks of mountains around there could be seen clearly but the horizon was vague.
