Snow Monkey

When I first proposed to my wife the idea of going to Nagano to photograph the snow monkeys she was really skeptical about the whole notion of going to some remote location and having to trek 2 kilometers through some path in the mountains just to see some monkeys.

With time it only became worst as she asked all her friends and family in Japan who all found the whole idea really silly and typical gaijin thing to do. She went along with, nonetheless, cause she could tell it meant alot to me. At the end of the day, I do believe that it is possible she enjoyed it a tad more than I did, and that's something hard to believe.
