under the shade (of a mountain? of trees)
yehey! (i took, via a tripod, five or six shots, and this is the only decent jump)
solo lang dapat ni lyn, me sumali
an effortless pose (go julie!)
31 (count 'em)
the last picture is the only family/group picture taken na kumpleto (and i initiated it), and i thank my tripod for being with me, otherwise, dalawa lang ang kalbo sa picture. :)
after danum, we went to another water, the Bokong falls.
Bokong falls, or small falls as what others may call it, is part of the river that irrigates the rice fields and is the "child" of Bumod-ok falls (Big falls), which, unfortunately is not part of our itinerary as it will eat at least five hours of trekking (which is just okey, at least Big falls is one good reason why we need to go back to Sagada).
going to the falls requires a few minutes of walk, pababa ng bundok, pababa, pababa. going down, the view is gorgeous (don't you just love sagada, seems like every view is beautiful) with a few baby rice terraces on the left and on the right, grasses that you need to hold on to or else, may paglalagyan ka (sa ibaba! hehe).
according to our guides, the basin/natural pool of the falls is deep, about nine-ten feet and the running/falling water is stronger during the rainy season. how was the falls? take a look:
yabang! (i like this shot and it was taken by lyn)
we went up using a different trail on the other side of the mountain, it's still steep but at least steps were made and there's something we can hold on to.
