This view brought me to tears

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.

Throwback

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.
