Another photo from my visit to the Communal Ranch while tree planting. The view was enough to make me tear up. I hope the photo does it justice since I only used my phone cam to take it.
Went tree planting at the Communal Ranch. It was cloudy, but the view was still beautiful. We can’t survive without Nature, but Nature can do fine without us. So let’s do our best to take care of what’s left.
Snapped this photo of the Kitanglad Mountain Range on my way home. One can never get tired of views like this.
Here’s a little throwback. This photo was taken at the summit of Mt. Dulan Dulang during our 3 day trek across the Kitanglad Mountain range. Mt. Dulang Dulang is the second tallest mountain in the Philippines, and is sacred ground for the local tribes. Before scaling up the mountain, climbers must first secure a government permit that must be signed by the local Datu (tribal chief) after a short briefing and cleansing ceremony. In the photo is one of our guides, and the shirts we were trying to dry in the sun.
I always enjoy finding “skeletonized” leaves. They look like scaffolding, or the aerial view of city streets..
Rice. I seldom eat it, but it’s one of my favorite plants to cultivate. It’s shape, the way it moves with the wind, and the satisfying sweet scent when whole paddies are in bloom. Ahhh rice. Such a beautiful plant.
