#012 – SHIZU-GA-TAKE
With more time on my hands than ever, I just can’t seem to grasp it and make good use.
When I have it: I can’t be arsed.
When I don’t: Frustration reigns.
The hours I waste are unfathomable at times.
Autumn break got us out on a few hikes to ease the Kyoto cabin fever welling up within me but the days in between just slipped through my fingers.
An overnight on a mountain was going to go a ways to remedying all that. Take The Kid on his first monster hike and let him see what he could achieve.
Shiga storms scuppered those plans at the last minute. It was a river hike that we’d planned and things seemed a little bit too risky to head out in the storms’ wake.
So, instead, we opted for a day hike and headed for Shizu-ga-take, a mountain sandwiched between lakes at the northern end of Biwa-ko in Shiga.
It was a temporary measure, but it sure eased the pain.
