Revealed Beauty...Behind Fury

March 15, 2008, Manila vters embarked on an adventure trek to Mt. Pinatubo in Botolan, Zambales. The group left Manila around 4Am, arrived in Capas, Tarlac at 6AM. At the registration camp, we rented a 4x4 car that took us halfway to the crater. The group were divided into two, 2 groups took the long route, 1 group took the short route via the Mt. Pinatubo Skyway. Fearing of discontent (just like what happened when I took the easy route during my Sumaging Cave exploration), I took the long route this time in going to Mt. Pinatubo. After a 1hour journey aboard the 4x4, running past amazing lahar formations, we started out trek at around 9AM, arrived at the crater at 12N, just in time for our lunch.

We spent our little time here taking pictures, some took a dip ? the water was just so inviting!
