Conquering Mt. Pinatubo (part two)


This is where the trek started.
We did it in 30 mins, so I guess, we belong to the Super Senior Citizens. LOL.

. . . . .

Everyone was so nice. They didn't want to be so obvious about it, but well, I noticed. They all were looking out for me. On our way to the crater, Chris walked infront of me while Obel was behind me. "So I could catch you," he said, in case I collapsed. I laughed. I'm bigger than him.

On our climb back from the crater, Chris was holding my hand, making sure I didn't fall. And during the entire trek, Edeena and Val were always checking if I was okay.

They also all suggested that our manong guide carry my backpack, but I chose not to let him. I was fine.

I felt an immense sense of gratitude because everyone was so thoughtful and sweet.

The trek wasn't so bad. We laughed a lot, drank fresh spring water, and took pictures.

Here's a few images of the trek.













Pin It!

I believed that, too.
I think it's not called dandelion here. It's called something else, but I can't remember what. Haha.

Thanks, Chi. I think you'd enjoy this trek.
We passed through so many beautiful pathways and streams. It was almost like what we read in books or see in movies. :)
