Yoko dropped me off about one kilometer upstream at my favorite overlook.
I hung around for about 20 minutes hoping for the sun to break through but I was getting cold so started to head back home.
Yoko gets to drive up the river every morning and often remarks when she gets home how beautiful it was with the mist and sun and snow.
I stopped in at the Zen temple. There is a nice garden behind it and I hoped to get some shots of it in the snow, but the priest wasn't home, so no luck.
Headed down to the riverbank to take photos of the plum blossoms and scared off a heron
And a flock of ducks. I think these might be a species of Eider. I suspect they will be heading north soon.
We have a lovely new set of tetrapods.......
and back to the village about an hour after I left....
