Autumnal afternoon bike ride

Today, I was fortunate to catch the changing autumn colours of the trees by the icy river, from the red bridge overlooking a spectacularly deep gorge of washed pebbles bleached in the meandering water. For those who read Japanese, this is the map reference

My total excursion in the last light was a little 7km round trip (used GPS) down to the river on route 209 (highway) that wandered through back-streets, next to a 'park' where people were walking and running and a serendipitous Shrine discovery. I met a few cats.
