Snow Trees (雪の木)

Yesterday, we went to a nearby ski mountain. The way the snow was crusted on the trees was really beautiful.

Snow Monkeys (温泉に入る日本猿)

Last year I wrote about the snow monkeys in Nagano Prefecture. Well I went there again a couple of weeks ago. What an amazing place. The monkeys just love the hot springs.

New Years in the Snow (雪の正月)

We spent a couple of weeks in Hakuba (Nagano Winter Olympics 1998), and got some great photo opportunities. The mountains really are beautiful in the mist and snow.
