and the mountain ash with red berries.

Here are the last bunch of the pictures taken on the hike to Mt. Nyuutou.
These were taken from Mt. Yumori to Mt. Nyuutou via Mt. Zarumori.
Especially, around Mt. Zarumori, you can see more dense red colors.
I couldn't stop taking pictures and kept taking pictures in practically every second!

乳頭山を目指してのハイクでは、湯森山を越えて、笊森山へ向かう周辺がすごかったです。
乳頭山からは田代平へ、そこから孫六温泉に下山、最終の新幹線で帰京しました。

These were taken on the trail through Mt. Sasamori, Mt. Yumori and Mt. Zarumori.
