嵐山観光プラス桜見物ということで嵐山高雄パークウェイを利用しました。山にあるので桜の開花が少しずれているのいいですね。雨が降っていましたが桜をきれいに見ることができました。人がかなり少なくてのんびりできました。

京都市内にある穴場的紅葉の名所を某旅行ガイド誌で探していたら、この自動車専用道路を見つけ早速出かけてみました。思っていたほど車の数は多くなくスイスイ走れました。沿道には赤や黄色に染まった紅葉が多くなり、軽食も取れるお店がある無料駐車場には真っ盛りの紅葉が目に入ってきました。さらに奥に走ると保津峡展望台があり、名前の通り保津峡を眼下に見ることができました。運が良ければ川下りする舟やトロッコ電車も見る...
