Morning from Shiga Kogen.

As I write this, the sun is out. There's cloud around but lots of blue sky too. Earlier on there was some light snow falling and so some trees are looking finely dusted.

Pretty!

A return to winter like weather - including snow - is due from Saturday for a few days. A fresh layer of snow would be most welcome. (Not that we ever don't want fresh snow, of course. Greedy!)

All areas and connections at Shiga Kogen are now open (with just a few minor exceptions).
