REBUN ISLAND IN HOKKAIDO

It takes two hours from Wakkanai port to Rebun island by ferry. Rebun island is a treasure house of wild flowers.

 稚内港からフェリーボートで約2時間かけて礼文島に行きました。

Looking for wild flowers,we walked about three hours in this hiking trail. from Momoiwa to Shiretoko.

 花の浮島と言われる、礼文島です。 桃岩から知床という地名の所まで約3時間のハイキングを楽しみました。

 we walked this hiking trail.


ハイキングコースです。


The scenery was very good.

右の方に桃の形に似た、桃岩が見えます。

We could see Mt. Rishirizan many times.

利尻富士が何度も見えました。

Just one day before, when we were in a ferry,we saw Mt.Rishiri with a cap cloud  hung over the top of the mountain.

We thought the next day would be rainy. But  the rain stopped during the middle of the night.

 前日、フェリーから見た利尻富士には笠雲がかかっていましたが、雨は深夜にやみました。


                                                 We could enjoy the hiking in a fine day.
 
 おかげで楽しく歩けました。

  14. こんにちは、3時間のハイキングコースは眺めも良くて最高だったのではないですか。 花の浮島というネーミングもピッタリですね。「レブン」が付く名前の花が沢山登場しましたが、固有種が沢山育ってるのは凄いと思いました。昔ですが利尻島に1泊、礼文島に1泊したのですが、どちらも夕日が美しかったのだけはよく覚えています。ところで北から南まで、全国くまなく訪問されて、もう行くところがだんだん無くなってきたのでは(笑)

       こんばんは。レブンとエゾとかが花の名前の先に付く花は葉っぱや茎などに細かい毛が生えて寒さ対策をしている植物がとても多いです。
       雨を覚悟していましたので、当日晴れてたのでとても嬉しかったです。利尻や礼文に行かれて晴れていて夕日が見えたのはラッキーだったと思います。
       何度も同じ所に行けますので当分、行く所に困る事は無さそうです。

  15. 花の浮島、礼文島は憧れです。学生時代に約3週間かけて北海道を一周しましたが、島には行きませんでした。実際に行って歩いてみたくなる光景です。観光シーズン前の比較的静かないい時に行かれましたね。前ポストのサロベツ原生花園は懐かしく拝見しました。

  30. 写真がとても美しいのはやはり空気が澄んでいる事もあるのでしょうか。礼文島、やはり遠いのですね。でも絶対行ってみたいです!夏がいいのでしょうね。コウリンタンポポのオレンジがとてもきれい。最後の写真もすばらしい!

      こんばんは。お褒め頂きありがとうございます。                     私も礼文島は2回目ですが、また季節を変えて行きたくなりました。 6月のレブンアツモリソウの咲く頃は利尻富士の冠雪も残っていてとても綺麗です。
       是非、一度いらして下さい。
