Conquer: Up to Batulao
A visual narration of our journey to and back the lovely mountains of Batulao.
Mr. Piggy lounging around in his pen. Most likely contemplating his future aka “dinner.”
Everywhere I looked there was dust, tall grass, and an upward climb
Arrival at the campsite was a definite accomplishment. 2 hours of walking is no easy feat.
At night, our only source of light was from a small kerosene lamp and the flashlights on our head. Surprisingly that was enough as the moon lit up the sky beautifully.
Sunrise greeted us, and after a quick breakfast, we begun our trek upwards to the summit.
Harrowing cliffs and rock walls second-guessing you every step of the way.
But we made it.
And making it calls for a celebration and an obligatory scream of relief.
