I recently traveled around Hokkaido, and wish to share the photos I took in the national parks, complete with alt-text descriptions for the visually impaired. Click on the pictures to see them at full size. Enjoy!
This is Rishiri island, part of Rishiri-Rebun-Sarobetsu National Park.

I found this chipmunk very close to Himenuma lake.
This is Rishiri-Fuji as seen from the 8th station (climbing up the mountain).
Here is another shot from the 8th station, looking at the coastline between Oshidomari (largest town) and the airport, with Rebun island visible in the distance.
An alpine flower spotted near the 8th station of Rishiri-Fuji.
This is a photo taken very close to the summit of Kita-dake.
Another shot from near the summit of Kita-dake.
