Getting ready for the winter

I recently climbed Mt. Jonen and Mt. Chogadake in Japan's Northern Alps. It's been so warm that there were only a few mountains with their peaks lightly covered with snow.

I was lucky enough to catch sight of grouses and ermines whose feathers were changing to snow-white color, and foxes who were hurrying here and there.

Winter was about to be there in a gentle pace.
