In hiking, who-is-the-fittest trail drama is not something to trudge through, as though it were an endurance contest – not unless it’s a trail marathon. The hike is meant to be filled with joy. But in order for this to happen, we must first learn to celebrate life.
Last weekend, we successfully conquered Mt. Ugo via traverse from Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya exit to Brgy. Tinongdan, Itogon, Benguet. The purpose of this climb is to celebrate the birthday of Dys and Sherwin, two super bubbly hiking enthusiasts I met during our previous Mt. Cinco Picos climb. Joining us is also another birthday celebrant, Ms. Leslie, making this climb a triple celebration.
There is nothing I love more than a celebration! What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a hike on the Cordilleras.
