Mount Fuji: Dog-Tired

8th Station. After walking all-night-long, most people will be  dog-tired.

Several minutes later, she woke up for a moment,

And falls to sleep again

A different view with some school students who were staying overnight at the lodges at 8th station.

They seem to be fully charged and were racing to the top

On those exhausted times, I keep asking myself: “Please remind me, why are we doing this?”

But, in the end, everything is worthwhile.

  1. Well.. you were awaken enough to take pictures. :) Can we conclude that you’re not like other people? :P
    I like the perspective of the last photo. :)

    • I’m having trouble sleeping with the lights on :D… beside, I already took 30 minutes sleep earlier.
      Thanks, Helder.

  2. I’d probably snooze if I was up there too! ;-)

    • After the long walk, I wouldn’t be surprise if you would snooze, my friend :D…

    • I don’t have any proof, but I suspect she was staying in one of the huts/lodges, somewhere near the 8th station :D… that’s why she is still fresh and happy :D…

      Anyway, surprisingly, I met a lot of children and old people on the way back. They look fresh, happy and merry :D…
