Dec 30, 2011. Yeah. As I truly enjoyed Salmon X-trail Run last November, I decided to take trail adventures to a newer level and told myself, i should go mountain climbing/ hiking.
Together with papa and sheena, we signed up for a climb (trailadventour.com) at Mt. Gulugod Baboy in Batangas. My intention for bringing Sheena along was to take her out of the hospital, for a change. Upon knowing this, papa decided to join us.
We met up with the entire group at Mcdo El Pueblo, Ortigas. Trip to Anilao Batangas was about 3Hrs. We arrived at the starting point of the trek at around 8am. At 830, after some stretching, we started the hike. Trail going up was not so tough for me. In fact it was quite easy. It took us about 2hrs to reach the summit. On top, 360 degrees view of sea and water made me SIGH positively. View from up there was amazing. The feel (and sound) of the wind on my face coming from all directions was relaxing. It was a nice place for yoga and just simply, breathing with nature.

Coming down was faster. I think it only took us 45mins to go back. It was my first hike and I loved it. It was nice to spend some bonding moments with sheena and papa as well. I shall do it again!!!=)
