Courage (part 2)
After all the horses were sent from the team at the bottom towards the top, where the group leads were waiting for them to arrive and catch them before running away (they can always decide to go where they'd like to without a rider in an open space!), The situation went into a stand still. Some of the horses got stuck or decided it was better to stop or just weren't confident enough to keep climbing up so we started yelling, the huasos called them, tried to urge them, support them and using their voices whistles mostly and trying to get close to them to encourage them to keep moving. We had to get out of that canyon.
Oku-Iya (奥祖谷観光モノレール )Kanko Monorail in Higashi Iya Valley (東祖谷) of Tokushima Prefecture of Shikoku, Japan
A slow moving Tourist Monorail that take 70minutes to complete a total of 4.6km journey, it started from base of Iyashi No Onsen Kyo Hot Spring area, and climb an altitude of 600m to reach 1400m sea level, the peak of the mountain.
The Monorail will climb or decent as steep as 40-45degree with its chair auto adjustable according to the angle of climbing.
It cost 2000Yen per adult and tourist whom take this train can use the hot spring at the base for free.
The scenery at this time is boring with the bold tree, however, I love the cooling breeze while moving through the trees and branches. There are a lot of name tagging to the trees and plants along the way for your understanding on the nature life in this area.
Been training at @novacitycentre pretty much every weekend so far this year, grateful to have such a good facility within an hours drive for my home when this weather is TRASH.
Wearing some prototypes for @street_media due to drop March time.
