    Our group arrived at the jump-off point around 0200H on Sunday, 18 Sept. After some breakfast, toilet breaks, etc, we had the orientation and started the trek at 0300H. It was bound to be a long day hike ("die hike") so our organizer decided to start early. It was still dark, so we used flashlights or head lamps.

    ^orientation

    We trekked for ~2.5 hrs in the dark - I didn't take pics. Some parts of the trail were super muddy. Some parts were rocky so I concentrated on the trek.

    It started to get light at 0530H.

    Well, the cold patty tastes like rubber but it gets the job done (alleviates hunger).

    There was a makeshift toilet. It had a Western loo, to my surprise! (no pic, sorry)

    After a short break, on with the hike

    In the muddy part (while it was still dark), I stepped into some deep mud. It was a bit like quicksand (I called it "quick mud") and a bit hard to get out off. It made my trousers & shoes very muddy afterwards.

    Some pics of the trail - it was very rocky. This was a 36 km trek (major hike).

    Sometimes the trail was narrow and full of tall grasses or ferns

    At around 0720H, we arrived at this viewpoint. The body of water in the distance is the West Philippine Sea, a.k.a. South China Sea.

    While your trip is really nice to see, not posting toilet pictures is a TD faux pas.

    Keep it coming Katie!

    Just saw this and thought of you....
