I made it to Aso. IT WAS INCREDIBLE. It was very much a flying-by-the-seat-of-my-pants side trip (and pretty expensive)…but I feel like the expense was justified. Whenever I may return, I’ll allow at least a full day to hike and explore.
I’m not totally out of the woods yet–I still have to find a way to the port, but at least I’ll make the ferry. There was a very real danger that I was going to miss it.
I just wish the weather had been better, but this has been a good trip, for sure.
