This is the return trip, to Shiga. Back in early November 2008, five of us went into this area for a weekend of mountain-biking, as well as other activities. Upon our return we vowed to return in winter, when there was some snow about, for some snow riding. But, as you can see, we were unable to venture very far, because of the depth of the snow. This made biking almost, if not, impossable. But, we had a great day none-the-less.
Just my usual piece of advice, whenever in the outdoors; respect, appreciate and enjoy.
