Week 18, 2012: Adventures in Bukidnon, so far

Stunning view during our hike (more pictures here). You see, taking pictures can be an excuse to stop and catch one's breath during climbs. (Enlarged view.)

While I was at The Overview, arguably the highest point in the Davao-Bukidnon highway, I stood in worshipful silence, as I looked all around me and saw the distant mountain ranges, the wide plains, the clouds, with alternating areas of sunshine and rain. The beauty that is Mindanao! Praise be to God for His marvelous creation! Thy works praise Him! (Enlarged view.)

A regal-looking white horse and the stream—which remind me of a scene from the Lord of the Rings where Arwen commands the river to swallow an entire army like a flashflood.

This one's closer to home—a stunning piece of architecture by National Artist Leandro Locsin, seen at the Mount of Transfiguration, Malaybalay, Bukidnon. Many thanks to Dr. Susan Punongbayan for taking us here—twice, because I wore shorts (not allowed inside the church, unfortunately) the first time (Enlarged view.)
