I'm grateful for any sunshine right now, even if it's from the other side of the world. It's snowing AGAIN! All that water must be missed somewhere else.
They are actually called Japan Alps? LOL, we feel honored
Did Dylan ever find a place where the snow was higher than he is? These wind-made accumulations of snow on top of a ridge (engl. word?) are sometimes too deep for Kessie, so she swims through. It looks really funny but she's through faster than i am, even if I'm taller than the heap of snow.

Cornice: A mass of snow stretching out from a ridge or cliff line.

Snowdrift: An accumulation of windblown snow deposited in the lee of obstructions.
A cornice is a specific type of snowdrift.

Big D - we went to Shiga Kogen in Nagano. It is a ski resort so we couldn't go anywhere except in the woods, but it was nice anyway. Saw a couple of rabbits !
Sandra - we didn't find any cornices ! I don't think Dylan would try and swim through. There were several really deep places but if I go around, then he does too. Or he finds his own way around. The first day he was really funny - it was deeper than it looks in the photos - He was wading ahead of me and then just stopped, rested his face on the snow ahead of him and looked back at me with the saddest/tiredest eyes. Wish I got a 'photo of that. Not sure how much he likes the snow. We drove from a place with no snow, to a place with tonnes of it. Think he was a bit suprised ! He did love it when it snowed at home last year though. (I think your Kessie is one in a million )
