More photos from a walk along the Yamanobe-no-Michi, after the rain. It was still too early in the season for flaming trees, but elsewhere, the orange was a-callin’.
The Yamanobe trail is actually an ancient road that runs along the eastern edge of the Nara basin, at the foot of Mt. Miwa. In terms of landscape, it is surprisingly varied, passing through forests and bamboo groves, shrines and old tombs, small villages, rice fields, and fruit orchards.
