Climbing Mt. Fuji is something that I have always wanted to do. Our family had the opportunity to go with a group yesterday and so we did. My oldest son made it to the top!
Since Mt. Fuji is a volcano, there was lots of lava rocks and lava gravel and ash. It was o.k. going up, but coming down was quite slippery.
The altitude made you stop to catch your breath more often. I loved watching the clouds roll in and out on the mountain.
I made it to station 6 and that’s o.k. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learned a lot for a future hike. I’d like to make it to the top sometime in the next few years. If I plan it right and keep working out like I have been, I think I can do it. It’s a lofty goal, but you have to have goals, right?
