Rocky Road (Mt. Pinatubo Expedition)

The road more travelled.  A day in February when all was dark and dull as the Backpackers traversed the trail to the crater.  For the rates and details, just consider this site http://www.trekkingpinatubo.com/.

For most, the end goal of the trip is just to reach the crater. But Miley’s right, it is the climb that matters; and when I say the climb, I am literal with this.  For us who can finance, we’ll just pay thousand of pesos and they will transport us via 4×4 jeep for about 45 minutes to an hour ride then drop us off at the initial trekking point.  But have you ever imagine the means of transport for those people (mostly aetas) living in the other side of refinement?  While riding at the back of the jeep, I noticed a family of four (parents with two children) walking the tracks and crossing the waters barefooted with me wondering on how far they have come and how long until they reach their destination.

I am living in a society bombarded with options; as opposed to others who have none at all.
