We took advantage of a beautiful day to go on a hike where nobody else was likely to be – up the typhoon damaged back train to Iyogatake’s cherry blossom area.
Getting up the mountain was an interesting puzzle of over, under, and around the fallen trees.
Our destination had been damaged by landslides, but the trees were still blooming as if nothing had happened. Nature is resilient!
Tod enjoys a rest under the cherries with a fallen bounder that found its way to the bench, too.
I think this is my favorite-ever hanami selfie.
