Photohunt: High

Dear Me,

It's another bright Saturday morning. The sun is high up already and I'll be otherwise engaged in one major house chore: tackling our dirty laundry. My regular companions for the day: our washing machine,
Ariel detergent, a drum of water, buckets and basin and of course, our soiled, filthy clothes. Sheesh.


Here's my
HIGH theme for today:


I've been a mountain trekker for years so what do you expect? Hehehe. *winks* I can't think of anything except this when the word 'HIGH' is mentioned. For me, high = mountain.

And so the photo above is a shot of the majestic highest mountain in the Philippines and the second (2nd) highest peak in Southeast Asia.

Situated in the island of Mindanao,
Mt. Apo towers at 2,966 meters with a vast area of 70,000 + hectares of mossy tropical forest, exotic flora & fauna, flowing rivers, streams and waterfalls. It is also home to the endangered Philippine Eagle.



And so I was able to climb the country's highest peak amidst physical difficulty, nature's assault and human drama (secret...hehehe).

I took this shot for I was standing there with the clouds, hugging me to warm me from the growing cold.

I also took this shot as the sun retired to its abode to remind me that there's another new day, another trek to each and everyone's trail of life. :)
