A Ring-path of Oze National Park
Today, I walked around Oze-Numa.
In Oze, there are few flowers in summer end season, so every one says "Out of season".
It rained on the previous night. The weather of the day was cloudy from foggy morning. Therefore, the boardwalk has got wet. It was very easy to slide on it, so I was getting nervous on a little slope walk. From the word "Out of season", I had hardly expected about wild flowers. However, I was able to see the beautiful small flower be in bloom here and there.
Since there were few hikers, I seldom needed to wait a person who is crossed with me on a narrow boardwalk. And I was not hastened my walk from back. I was able to enjoy the nature of Oze in a comfortable walk condition.
I think "The wonderfulness of Oze" that those who have visited Oze say was able to understand in such an unfavorable condition.
I will upload the picture to some part divided along the path.
