With Chris. Exploration in the Yuzawa area. A hard long slog of 9hrs+ where we ended riding back to the car in total darkness with headlamps. What we hoped to be a 2-day trip with an overnight stay in a snow cave ended-up being a long 1-day affair after we were defeated by a river crossing. Click on above link for pictures.
