Mt Fuji Climb 2006

Last week, me, anna and our church friends climbed 3750 meters to the top of Mt Fuji (highest peak in Japan). This was an amazing experience which took 6 hours to climb and 2 hours to walk(slide) back down. We started at 1030pm to see to the sun rise at 430am. check out our pics - click here

The saying in Japan is that "you are crazy not to climb Fuji once and crazy to climb it again". I agree.. 5 degrees, no sleep, a 6 hr hike and thin air is not a great combo, but we were blessed with unbelievable weather and no rain. The last slide of the pics is a video of our church group singing priase and worship at the top of Mt Fuji.
