Yasuno-taki waterfall in Moriyoshizan  森吉山の安の滝 10/04/2017

After Kurikomayama hiking, we stayed overnight in the area. The next day (Oct. 3) was a travel/rest day because the weather was not good enough. We drove a few hundred kilometers to Moriyoshizan in Kita-Akita City,Akita Prefecture. We camped in Oyako-Camp site (well-equipped camp site, free of charge), planning to visit Akamizu-Keikoku (gorge) the next day.

栗駒山に登ったあと、近くで一夜を過ごした。翌日は移動日、およびレスト。数百キロ走って秋田県北秋田市の森吉山に着いた。親子キャンプ場でキャンプ(設備良し、無料)。翌日は赤水渓谷を歩く予定だった。

 

Next morning, as we were just about to leave the camp site, it started to rain. We changed our plan and went to see waterfalls in the opposite side of Moriyoshizan. We drove the dirt road and hiked for one hour to see Ichino-taki(first waterfall), Nino-taki(second waterfall), and Kobeeno-taki. The path was not well trodden, we had to cross streams several times and I felt a little uneasy about going further. After the 2nd waterfall, I turned back. Sue went on to see Kobeeno-taki.

翌朝出発しようとすると雨が降り出した。計画を変更して森吉山の反対側にある滝を見に行くことに。最後は未舗装の道路を走って、1時間あるいて一ノ滝、二ノ滝、幸兵衛の滝を見に行った。トレイルはあまり踏まれていなくて、渡渉も何度かあった。不安を感じて私は二ノ滝から戻った。Sueは幸兵衛の滝まで見に行った。

 

We drove to another valley, Nakanomata-Keikoku to see Yasuno-taki. It was raining on and off, and we stayed in our car for a while. We were not sure if we will come back here if we miss this chance, and started to follow the trail in the rain. The rain let up as we went.

次の中ノ又渓谷の安の滝を目指した。雨が降ったりやんだりで、しばらく車の中で待機したが、チャンスは2度とないかもと思い、雨具を着て歩き出した。雨が小止みになった。

The trail was just beautiful. And Yasuno-taki was magnificent. There was a little sunshine, and we saw a rainbow across the waterfall.

渓谷は美しかった。安の滝は壮大。少し日が差して虹が見えた。
