Hit the road at 4:30 and sailed down the coast along the Seisho bypass with a brightening sky out over Sagami Bay. Climbed into the hills up the super green summer orchard roads.
Wriggled out of the undergrowth just in time to see the sun brightening the sea fog.
The temps and weather were just right!
The roads through the orchards are even better at that time of the day
Stopped by the Yoroizuka Farm to find some troll fauna petrified by the sunrise
Then scooted off up through Hakone and around the north end of Ashinoko along the Skyline
The dawn fog was lingering
The view north west topped was much better
Then it was off to skirt around the south of Mt. Fuji before sailing along the coast again down through Shizuoka to Shimizu and then zig-zagged up through the Minami Alps to Ikawa Lake / dam… but I suffer a little indecision everytime the signs and spokes of the junction near Dainichi Touge come up
The dam at Ikawa always impresses
