Mt. Talim Apo

It was a nice feeling going back to mountain climbing after almost a year of outdoor inactivity. The last time that i climbed was in March 2008, something like a pre-birthday climb in Batulao. It's good to see the same old faces and meeting new ones, and taking care of first time climbers in the group is an enjoyable but also a hell of a job, now I know how the veterans felt when I came ala-turista on my first ever climb hehehe.

Mt. Talim Apo (also known as Mt. Tagapo to locals) is located in Brgy. Janosa in Binangonan, Rizal. It is very visible when one is passing the South Luzon Expressway, at Laguna de bay, it is the towering almost cone-shaped mountain. For 2009, this is the first Friendship climb organized by our group, Yapak Mountaineers, Inc., and what a way to start the year and for me to go back in climbing.

four of the seven-member group that i was assigned to guide

Here are some of the shots that I took during the climb. Enjoy. :)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog — I'm glad you enjoyed my Caleruega photos. But I have to say that mine are nothing compared to yours! Your photos are absolutely stunning!

I am sorry to hear about your wife's miscarriage too. I'm glad you're both fine, but I said a little prayer for both of you anyway. I hope God blesses you with little ones to grow in His love. Take care and be well.
