Mount Pulag: Chasing the Sea of Clouds

After the sunrise at the peak, we all went down to chase the sunrise under our guide Ate Levita's aid.

On the way, we asked each other if we're really up to chasing the clouds.  Everyone agreed.  My friend Steph said just go and she'll be fine behind.  Steph and Ate Levita had become pretty close at this point.  They even called each other on first name basis.  According to Steph, Ate Levita is a farmer on weekdays and Porter on weekends.  But since there is a shortage on guides, she became ours.  She is very nice.  She even volunteered to carry Steph's things for free.

With full spirits, the guys went on.

The trail became narrow and the grass become taller.

Steph and Ate Levita were left behind so they can just wait for us.

Ate Levita advised us to follow the Lusod trail.

We did as instructed.

We passed by this flag.

Until we reached a dead-end.  Too late... we were too late for the sea of clouds.  It has already passed by.  But, since we're already there.  We took a group photo with the beautiful backdrop of the Cordillera Mountains and the blue skies

We regrouped with Steph and headed our way back to Camp 2.

Heading back is when we really got to see the vegetation of Mount Pulag.
