Reunited with Nature at Last!

Last December 24 and 25, we were invited by a friend to their humble abode in the midst of a mountain somewhere in Sta. Maria, Laguna. I was actually looking forward to this trip because it’s in the mountain! Nothing excites me more than spending the night in the mountain, filling my lungs with fresh air (no allergies in the morning) and enjoying the scent of the grass. magnificentThe place was only two and half hours away from Manila so it’s a perfect get away from the stressful city. I wish we had our own piece of land there with trees of course!

The highlight of the trip was the falls. The water was definitely inviting but the urge to take photos was stronger. This opportunity doesn’t come too often, you know.

Bryce by the falls

No water is too cold for Bryce.

I’m not sure what the elevation is but we must have been pretty high up. It felt like someone turned on nature’s air conditioner but way, way better because the air just felt and smelled wonderfully delicious.


Even Morgan, our year-old Lab, enjoyed the hike and the swim in the falls.

Sorry, I’m so bad at sharing this trip. I’m actually out of words to describe the experience. It’s just pure bliss… I hope these pictures would speak for me instead.

    Mic, if and when I visit Pasig again, could we go to this place. It looks like paradise to me. This is a good place to enjoy nature, meditate and relax. There could be a problem in climbing up but I can stay below the falls and enjoy the clear and fresh water. This will be my “Banff” in the Philippines where I always went. Promise:)
