oh, and yes we met again, Mt. Batulao (my second this year and third time ☺)
It was in the best effort of Jane, to make this hike possible. I am just a support ☺.
it was their first, I guess, they were excited and scared too. Excited for the adventure and scared as they don’t know what to expect.( Exactly the same feelings I’ve got when it’s my first.)
There were things that they wanted to do that I think was not necessary because it was a day hike as we planned. But I will not meddle on the excitement and the experience that they’ve picture out on their minds. One thing, I became excited too. lols!
and so we cooked our lunch and it was really fun!
I miss this and realized I got to taste it again in Batulao. Yum! ☺
"baket ang sarap kumain sa tuktok nang bundok? di ba Mark? lolz!
At the campsite. Old trail route.
And now we’re getting ready, physically and mentally to take the challenge of getting to the summit. =)
at last, at the summit and all wet
descending was always easier, but with the rain and muddy trail for the first timer, i say - good job mams and sirs =)
There’s rain and rain stop and rain again. Binyagan na ba? hehehe
It’s my third time in Mt. Batulao.
I’ve been here overnight the first time,a day hike on the second where i encountered rain shower descending and third, I’ve experienced heavy rains and thunderbolts on our way to the summit. Every climb is a new experienced and a lot of things that I’ve learned and enjoyed. Thank you dear God for all of these.
A day like this should end with a good reward. Something we enjoy. Something we love to do: EAT!
Mt. Batulao , Batangas / Oct. 11,2014
After almost a year and a half- Here we are, a dayhike surmounting Mt. Batulao.
What’s good on this hike? ( at least for me )
1. it was my second in Batulao. It was easier unlike my first - maybe because the trails were familiar
2. it was a dayhike. I carried a lighter bag - that made me less nervous when we took the new trail going down.
3. lastly, my baba agreed to climb with me. I was overjoyed.
My worries and fear washed away the moment I saw him moved at a regular and cautiously slow pace, enjoying every step of the way. There were playful times though that made my heart dropped and scream - “don’t jump” “please be careful”. hahahah! Maybe these are some reasons why our children do not want to be with us during adventures :p
playful baba , staying for awhile, letting those students getting through their way down ( traffic hehehe)
4. This time, I’ve experienced this. [crawling going up with the help of this dependable rope (“,) ]. I had a different way, the last time with Manny’s help. (at the other side)
at the summit @ 811 msl
Being with nature is a queer stress reliever. It made me feel that I am alive and blessed, especially that day for my baba is with me.
Thank you for the experience my hike buddies. Thank you dear God. (“,)
