Default Mascaf-Puray-Mt. Balabag-Licao-Macabud traverse

Done on a Thursday, with only 4 hours of sleep. It was a good thing Teng was free that day. Vincent and me met up at McDo katips around 730am and we got to UP almost 7pm.

The trail was awesome, beautiful and yummy haha. There were lots of uphills going to Puray and then after that some hike portions which was quite dangerous when its raining because only a few inches was available for us to step across on. Also, if it was a hot sunny day, it would be harder coz most portions of the trail is unshaded.

We also found a water source in Mt. Balabag before the peak. Going down Balagbag was purely downhill bliss. We had lunch around 5pm already and we had snack 5 hours before that lolz.

The weather was great and cooperative, it was very cool that day, we had few minutes of drizzle but that's it.



















We had lunch near the elementary school, they said no medical mission yet in their area.
They already have a population of 200+ and still growing. Our lunch: bread with peanut butter.

Just after the elementary school make a left and you'll see mala-DRT kind of ruts.



Even tricycles and motorbikes have a hard time going uphill and downhill here.


A Y intersection, make a left.


Vincent, watering the plants haha.

Delicates pag umuulan.


At the background, the small community we passed by and eroded hill we crossed

After that, single track bliss!







Vincent the poser lolz.

After the single track bliss, great views and Mt. Balabag, Helipad.







There's Mt. Balabag infront of us.

A view of the metro.



More single track and downhills. rapsa!


A sad fact, which contributes to climate change:



Our poor friend, staring of what he would become soon.

More single tracks and this time its a bit muddy. slippery when wet.



This is one of the mountains in Bulacan, Vincent forgot the name. But notice the clearing where the Dumagats

reside.
After a month or two maybe, that whole mountain will be cleared of mountains. Sad tsk tsk.


A close up of what the mountain will look like in the coming months.


Man were really hungry.


Fit and right anyone?

Panalo nga dun, single track heaven and semi masukal yun trail. ansarap and presko ang hangin. Kalungkot dahil unti-unti nang kinakalbo ng mga dumagat.
