It looks like Pat’s been climbing Mt. Fuji!!

Mount Fuji  is the highest mountain  in Japan; located on Honshu Island at 3,776.24 m
(12,389 ft).[1]  An active stratovolcano that last erupted in
1707–08, Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometres (62 mi) south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone, which is snow-capped
several months a year, is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently
depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and
climbers. It is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains” along with Mount Tate  and Mount
Haku it is a Special Place of Scenic Beauty , a Historic Site, and has been submitted
for future inscription on the World Heritage List
