Day hike to Takamizu sanzan with my son.

As we got off the train at Mitake station hundreds of hikers were slowly milling towards the gate. I feared for a moment that all this mass of people might be headed to Takamizu like us, yet it was not the case. They were almost all going to Mitake-san, good for us. Louis had been sleepy in the train but probably due to the heat couldn't fall asleep and so was not really motivated to walk. I carried him up to the first summit and he fell asleep in a matter of minutes. The trail was relatively steep at first, with flat sections then gentle slopes on the second part. It was very humid and the temperature well above 20 degrees, I usually consider it's hot in the mountains when above 0 degrees... this was really too hot.

The trail going downhill from the first summit is rocky and steep, also it was still humid from the previous day's rain. Not the ideal condition for a 2 year-old but at that time I was carrying Louis so it went smoothly (I guess it wouldn't for most people carrying the same load as I did) After that stretch the trail is almost flat and very wide, nice for running I would say.

I tried to have Louis walk but he wasn't motivated, so I made a deal with him, I would carry him to the second summit, we would there and after that he would walk. He agreed and we did that. At the summit it was crowded as only Japanese mountains can be: easily 100 people on the flat summit, some even their face in the sun, some smoking, most eating on a plastic sheet. The group of young foreigners we had passed earlier came back to our level and we lost them when Louis was walking uphill to the third summit (Takamizu-yama)

There was nothing much to see during the day yet we had fun. Louis kept laughing whenever I said "Takamizu-yama". Several times I had to motivate him with the promise of a cookie if he reached the objective, and we had numerous short breaks. Overall he worked the last 5.5 km, his new record to date. It was mainly downhill and I sensed he's making progress in terms of balance and control. Before he used to dash downhill and I saved him from falling dozens of times with the harness.

I expected to have him collapse in my arms at the end of just when riding the train... I was dreaming, the kid was full of energy and at the end he was slapping me to stay awake. I had him run home from the station and eventually he went to bed no sooner than any week day. Next time I have to make him walk more uphill.

Overall it was a warm day, Louis enjoyed the hike and was tireless from noon to bedtime.
