2024.07.05Happo-One / Sunny

Although it was a weekday, the good weather meant that even before 8:00 a.m., a line had begun to form for the Kurobishi 3 Pair, which started moving at 8:15. Nikkokisuge day lillies were in full bloom around the Kamaike Marsh (pictured), and as I stopped before boarding the Grat Quad, I overheard visitors commenting about how beautiful and plentiful the flowers were, with several eagerly taking photos of the nikkokisuge day lillies with the three Hakuba Sanzan peaks in the background.

On the steep rocky climb up the mountain climbing course, I felt the heat of the strong summer sun on my back, but above the wooden boardwalk stairs, the wind was blowing so strongly that it almost blew my hat off, quickly cooling my overheated body. Above me, the clouds were moving at a tremendous speed across the sky.

Nikkokisuge day lillies were at their best at the beginning of the nature trail. Tateyama utsubogusa (Prunella prunelliformis) was in full bloom in the middle part of the trail, and watasuge (cotton grass) was peaking at the end of the wooden boardwalk course. On the west side of Happo Pond, chinguruma (Aleutian avens) had passed its peak and was being replaced by a few iwa-icho (deer cabbage) flowers. There were a lot of people heading beyond the No. 3 Cairn towards Mt. Karamatsu, and I met two hikers who told me, “We’ll go as far as we can!”

A hiker I met around the No. 3 Cairn (pictured, background) comented, “The takane-bara (Rosa nipponensis) is blooming beautifully.” On the popular deck at the edge of the Happo Pond, I felt as if I could stay there for hours, looking at the shimmering pond and feeling the cool mountain breeze.
