Off-Season Training Report - Shiretoko Pass (Trans-Shiretoko Highway) 2
Special guest Panman and K participated in this training. It was 19 degrees Celsius at the Shiretoko Pass.
The Shiretoko Pass, the culminating point of the Trans-Shiretoko Highway is known as a pass that exists above the tree line. You can enjoy quite view from the summit without being blocked by trees. This day as well, you could enjoy the view beneath. However, the mountains were cloud covered. So the most beautiful point of the Trans-Shiretoko Highway: the Mt.Rausu (Mt.Rausudake) wasn't seen unfortunately.
This day, we climed from the Rausu side.
Crossing a long bridge.
We can't see the summits of mountains.
It's shame we can't see the mountains which are super-beautiful.
Deers (Hokkaido Shika Deers) are often seen on this route.
