I could put in two wonderful morning runs in beautiful Tateshina recently.
It was very clear on Sunday morning.
Miscanthus sinensis are pretty this time of the year.
A female Japanese pheasant was walking across a road.
Reflections of trees on the water of a man-made lake.
Colors were just stunning.
There are many Soba restaurants on Venus Line.
Cotton-like things are Clematis vitalba
Pretty autumn colors seen in back roads.
Tengu-dake peaks were visible.
More beautiful autumn colors.
This morning, it was VERY foggy when I started running.
Just white beyond the little Torii.
Fallen leaves covered the road.
I saw some deer in this woods, but very difficult to photograph them.
A Sabo dam.
White moss on trees were beautiful.
These mosses looked green.
This road had yellow leaves.
Beautiful leaves in front of a little inn/restaurant.
I could see much better when I got back to where I started.
Still have beautiful colors at over 1,600 meters (1 mile) altitude.
