Leaving Gunma via the SCT

Snow Country Trail

Following the Snow Country Trail from Gunma to Niigata, I managed to snag a sweet campsite with spectacular views down into the valley, only about an hour short of the pass.  From this point the trail levels off as it passes one of the Mountain huts and its all downhill, literally.  On the Niigata side, the SNC  criss-crosses its way down into the valley.  At this point in the season, the Niigata side was blooming with summer flowers. As I descended into the lush green native beech forests I could see the neighboring peak of Makihata, rising over the valley.
