The Ushiro-Tateyama Mountain Range received its first snowfall of the season on 10/5 (Thurs.). Assuming the mountainsides continue to transition toward their fall colors between now and the end of October, there is a good chance we will be able to see sandan koyo, or ‘three-tiered fall leaves,’ where the base of the mountains are still green, the leaves midmountain are at peak autumn colors, and the tops of the Alps are white with fresh snowfall. The low morning temperatures combined with a strong westerly wind meant that it felt cold even with a down jacket on, but the intermittent rainfall did make for a nice rainbow.
