Hokkaido Camping Part 3

After a great visit in Jozankei we headed deeper into Hokkaido in search of Volcanic Mountains and flower fields.  It was a long day of driving so we stopped along the way to look at flowers, play at parks and skate. Our first night was at Asashidake. We camped right at the base of the ropeway and had an amazingly clear night for star gazing.  The next day we went to the Zoo in the morning before working our way down into the Furano Valley area which is famous for there flower fields in the summer months.  The next couple of days we spent checking out the area and even going as high as you can drive on a paved road in Hokkaido to Tokachidake spa.  Great place year round and can't wait to check it out in the winter, although it is the coldest place on the island. 

Finally in Part 4 (Lake Shikotsu and Hakodate)
