Jack’s Ridge is located at Shrine Hill in Matina, Davao City. The place was the last stand of Japanese in Davao during their invasion time in Philippines. American soldier successfully won over Japanese and retreat on this place after they lost the fight. I like the area because there are lots of restaurants around it and the place is great for Davao Gulf lookout view. Photo captured last March 2009.
When I visited Eden Nature Park in Toril Davao City last March 2009, while walking around in a nature park, I saw this message which at first I did not care what it says until something buried in my memory which is the word ‘worth’ and numbers which I thought like an amount of money. With that in mind, I approach the message board and look at it in detail. As I read it, I felt surprise and stunned because I never realised the actual worth of a tree in terms of money. Yes, I knew a tree is important in terms of ecological balance and it’s other significant uses, but to understand or measure it by amount of money, I never really thought about it. For me the message is really a profounding wisdom.
After Mount Apo trek, I stayed in Davao for another 3 days so that I can see more of Davao. One of my mountaineer friends stayed behind as well as he will also spend holidays in Davao at that time. One of the side trip that I did with my friend were water tubing and snorkelling in Santa Cruz Davao del Sur. Sibulan River was the river we visited to experience water tubing and the whole group enjoyed the adventure with the rapids of the river. Photo captured last March 2009.
Precious Moment In The Mountain (Post#14) : Mount Apo Boulders
Mount Apo is the Highest Mountain in my country. I only knew this mountain by its name and by being the highest mountain. I never imagine before that time will come that I will be able to reach the summit of this mountain. I will never forget a risk life climb that I experienced on this magnificent mountain. Photo above was the boulder parts before reaching the crater and summit of the mountain which captured last March 2009.
The above snapshot was Mount Apo, the highest mountain in the Philippines located between Davao City and Davao Del Sur in Mindanao region. I captured this photo after climbing the mountain which lasted almost 4 days last March 2009.
Home (Post#3) : Bahay Kubo (Nipa Hut) At Eden Nature Park
I took this photo when I visited Eden Nature Park which located at the foot of Mount Talomo at Toril District of Davao City in Philippines last March 2009, during my three days holidays in Davao after finishing 4 days climb in Mount Apo.
I posted this same photo last April 2009 from my other blog which focused solely to photos from my country. Right now I am still thinking if I will just continue that blog in other site or will just transferring the site here in WordPress. Let’s see whats gonna happen.
