It's a hard life

...but someone's got to do it

We had some time before my train back to Wakkanai, so my driver (haha) took me up through the local mountain road.

Summer really shines when it comes to lovely views!

Hi, little buddy

I saw this lovely little flower growing today, and its color made me think of the coming fall. I'm already looking forward to free air conditioning.

But I will miss running outside! And short sleeves (even though the sun is really too powerful to enjoy wearing them much). And all the flowers!

Each season has its good points, though. Fall brings cozy sweaters and warm drinks. Winter brings the glorious snow that awes me every time it falls. Winter Part Deux? That's just kind of yucky. But spring comes again, and eventually, the north bursts into green.

I think my favorite is fall, though. How about you?
