Travel Photo: Just a Couple of Climbers

This photo was taken today at Mt. Katsu in Okinawa, Japan.

The couple came along while I was hanging out shooting some wild critters.

They are heading up the trail to the top of the mountain.

A fairly good climb, it takes young folks about an hour to reach the peak they are headed for.

We made some small talk and, somehow the guy's age slipped out. He's in his eighties.

So, I let him know I'm 60 something.

The gal just laughed and called me a youngster.

Do you ever meet couples like this in your travels ?

It's amazing how active people stay, but then that's probably why they can keep going. Use it or lose it!

Agree. These folks will probably still be hiking into their 100's !
