Mount Pulag 04: The Descend

Life is so short; close to the edge of another backdoor
Life is so sure; life will be ready to twist up your world...
~ Lacuna Coil (To the Edge)~

We stayed at the summit for hours and decided to descend just as the other batches of climbers were starting to arrive. We still have our tent and things to fix and pack before heading to the lowland.

Since we made the assault very early in the morning and the weather was not very friendly, it was impossible for me to take photos. So, I decided to take photos during our descend wherein I could see everything even the precipice.

more than one trail

With the increasing number of climbers going to Mount Pulag, more trails are being estbalished occupying a portion of the grassland.

The fog simply makes the scene a bit more dramatic. When did you climb? Why is the grass brown?

The brown grassy mountains look like the backs of shaggy bears. Parang hindi sa Pilipinas. Ang ganda sobra! :)
