Climbing Mt. Batulao

Monday, March 21, 2011

The mountain’s jagged peaks looked imposing from afar, but when I first set foot on the trail it felt so utterly splendid that my apprehension all but vanished. Having my younger siblings with me made it even more fun for, having spent our youth up North, we were imbued with an incurable love of mountains.

Mt. Batulao, Nasugbu, Batangas
The cool wind that made the cogon grass bend sinuously to the ground bathed us in freshness. We ran along the narrow trails, reveling in the quiet of the place and making each moment our moment. The clouds muted the verdant slopes and shielded us from the sun’s harsh glare throughout the entire trek. Several hours of hiking lead us to the summit from where we saw a landscape beautiful and vast beyond imagination.

It must be so exhilerating to climb a mountain and then look down at the view. I am sure you all had a wonderful time.

@Loree: yes, we had a wonderful time. a bit tiring but truly exhilarating. :)

@Lorenzo: I remember you. and your cool voice. :)

@Amelia: Thank you. :)

@Wits: The mountain was bare, too. Not a tree in sight. Good thing makulimlim yung panahond noon so it wasn't that hot. Thank you, Wits. :)
