“Obelisk” at Mt. Ho-ou, Minami Alps mountain range, Yamanashi, Japan
This picture was taken atop the rock formation known as the ‘obelisk’ atop Mount Ho-ou, in the Minami Alps, Japan (August, 2011). After a day of hiking the “Aoki-ko-sen” route from Yamanashi Prefecture, we camped at a campground near the peak. Early the next morning, we hiked the last segment to the top just before sunrise. My husband climbed to the very top of the obelisk, sat down, and snapped this shot.
Wow, that’s really up there, and what a view!
