Halloween Hike to Sapporo Dake

Last weekend, 7 of us went for a Halloween Hike up Sapporo Dake... We lucked out with the weather on the first day and had a great hike up which ended at this amazingly quaint old log cabin mountain hut.



Leon brought halloween decorations and cooked us up a mean halloween Japanese nabe style dinner complete with mulled wine!





On Day 2 we had a spooky foggy mist quite suiting for our Halloween hike...

I felt some demon like spirits take over me on parts of the trail.... ooOoOOoOOoOo....





We celebrated at the peak with my signature sexy photo shoot!

The boys got quite into it and would pose for me on demand!!!!

On the way down, the trail was insanely slippery and quite steep so most of us were on our butts sliding down most of the way... was good fun!!!! but we were FULL OF MUD...

and of course since Japan is the home of RANDOMNESS... it didn't surprise us one bit that at the base of the mountain we bumped into a huge Halloween Zoo party!!!!! hahahaha...

we took a peak over the fence and saw huge snakes, pelicans, beavers, hawks, GIANT jack o lanterns, and more..... hrmm....
