I noticed a sign saying the overlook of Mt. Komagatake was along the road. I steered towards the direction which the sign indicated in a reflexive manner. Whenever I find a new forest road, I try to enter the road without hesitation. It might be my instinctive habit. I love driving rally cars on the unpaved road. While driving a few kilometers, the amount of snow was increasing. The administrator would leave the snow on the road and just wait for its melting. My car was equipped with winter tires, but it was rear-wheel drive. Even though it had winter tires, it would be dangerous to climb up to the overlook. I got away from the road. The first picture is shot at the highest point we reached and the last picture shows the exit of the forest road. My car got dirty, but was able to come back without any damage. It was lucky!
