Happy Hump Day, amazing people!

Let's get to another interesting walk today, and I am taking you to the moon! Any selenophiles like me out there? You heard it. The moon just landed on the mountains of La Trinidad, Benguet, here in the Philippines!

You know, there's something incredibly magical and mysterious about the mountains. I mean, that's just me. Their towering peaks, the way the sunlight dances off their tips, and the sheer sense of accomplishment when you reach the top—this is the tale of one such adventure, a challenging trek my husband and I undertook to the Rocky Mountain Adventure Unlimited in La Trinidad, Benguet, 2 weeks ago. I posted in my previous posts a landscape view of the mountains where the giant Cresent Moon statue was located. Today, I am posting photos of the moon itself on top of the mountain.

Our journey began after a late breakfast at one of the local restaurants in Baguio City, and later, we headed to La Trinidad to witness this new tourist spot in Benguet. The air was crisp, the sky was blue, and the weather was awesome. It was a perfect day to go on a trek. No drizzle, no rain. It was about a 30-minute drive from Baguio City. When we got there, we were filled with anticipation, our hearts beating in sync with the rhythm of nature. The path was steep and rugged, a little muddy and slippery, mossy and green, and just a testament to the adventure that lay ahead. But we were undeterred. With each step, we were not just climbing a mountain; we were also overcoming our own personal barriers. Our daughter was actually with us, but she decided to just stay in the car since the pathway going up is a bit challenging for an 11-year-old kid.

The trail was a mix of dense forests and open terrain. The rustling leaves whispered tales of the many travelers who had embarked on this journey before us. The chirping of the birds was our constant companion, their melodies echoing through the vast expanse. We paused occasionally, not just to catch our breath but to soak in the beauty that surrounded us. My husband, who is the talker, made the trek more meaningful. Video here, vlog there, picture here, snap there. Lol. The higher we climbed, the thinner the air got, and the tougher the trek became. But we kept each other going. We were both set on reaching the top and seeing the famous crescent moon statue.

And let me tell you, when we finally saw the statue, it was totally worth the effort. It was a wowzer for me. It was standing tall against the sky, looking absolutely majestic. The view from the top was just breathtaking. We stood there, taking it all in, feeling really proud of ourselves for making it. The trek was definitely challenging, but it was also a lot of fun. We got to spend some quality time together, enjoy the beauty of nature, and just be. We took photos and videos and made memories up there for keepsakes. It was a great experience, and I'm really glad we did it.

So yeah, that's our Rocky Mountain adventure to the moon. It was a tough climb, but the view from the top was extraordinary and phenomenal. I hope you guys get the chance to visit the place as well. I swear, it's worth every step and hike.

Until next, my friends. Thank you for visiting!
