After a long wait, I am back with another lost entry about Japan! Coming up this time: my last p-day.
For some reason when I left on my mission I had the image of p-day equaling mountain hiking. It took me until the end of my mission to finally be able to fulfill my dream (I was always in a far away area. Or it was snowing. Pesky snow), but it was worth it and I feel like I definitely need to share!
We climbed Mt. Maruyama, which is in the huge Maruyama park in Sapporo. It wasn’t too long, but fairly steep and provided us with a great view.
We started off at the mission home…
Journeyed through the park to the starting point…
Walked up and up and up…
And got to see a great view of the city of Sapporo!
Maybe we played a little up there too.
And made it back down with a mission hiking goal accomplished! (There are many more mountains though, so I might have to go back…)
In case there weren’t enough pictures for you:
