Photographer's Note

Mt. Fuji is well known for its symmetrical truncated cone shape. The slope is more gentle at the base while it gets steeper as we approach the top. This picture is taken around the top of Mt.Fuji. The slope here as we can see is almost 45 degree. The path seen here is the descending path. The descending path is very steep and we have to literally run down the steep slope covered with volcanic rocks and ash while climbing down. Some trekkers are seen in the picture. The mountain exploded in 1707, exactly 300 years before we scale it. This red mountain has no vegetation and is all covered with volcanic rocks and ash.
