day 240 - going up...

Mon August 25.
Today we left Sapporo and crossed the flattish farmlands for Asahikawa, then bussed up the mountains to Asahidake. There's a spaciousness here that we haven't seen since Australia. 
It was too foggy to go up the ropeway so we hiked a few trails in the valley.

Asahidake to Asahidake.

One-horse open sleigh. This sits incongruously between tracks at the Iwamizawa Station. This whole area is covered in snow in winter, but we won't be seeing any...

Walk through a birch forest.

I'm a real fun guy...

Unidentified dragonfly on some unidentified pretty purple flower. (Can you help?)
