Journey to Fuji-san (IX)
Posted by Alfredo J. Martiz J. (Panama City, Panama) on 27 August 2007 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.
What happened after the photo I presented yesterday was not so nice, I got really tired, my body was lacking oxygen, It was dark so I didn't make photos and I could not think about that at all, I was so tired the only thing I was thinking about was to arrive to the hut, but I started to have some problems to walk, my legs were hurting.
Thanks to Miguel and Ana Teresa who helped me to continue, Thanks to Marcel and Hanna for carrying the Tripod and the Camera.
I had to stay in a different hut because I needed to take a rest, my friends made it to the reserved hut. I had dinner and went to sleep around 21:00. I am sorry I cannot show you photos of how you spend the night in those huts (my friends helped me by carrying my camera) you only have a space of 80 cm by 190 cm to sleep and it is really crowded.
Around 1:00 I woke up and around 1:30 I got ready to continue to the hut where my friends stayed, I joined a group of japanese to continue and I got really surprised because around that time a lot of people were walking to the top. I joined my friends around 2:30 and then we continued our way to the top, it was around 3:00 when we started to walk to the top.
After the exhausting way, we were blessed with this beautiful sunrise, people stopped walking just to admire, many people started to take out the cameras to make photos. It was really cold (I remember one guy said that the temperature was around 8 °C) but as the sun was coming out the scene was filled with a warm and peaceful feeling, as I said yesterday, We made a visit to Heaven!
A new week begins, I wish you a wonderful week, let this sunrise fill your week with wonderful moments.
