But circumstances found me still out on the trails during the weekend. Not that I’m complaining! Here is a brief account of my experience in the recent Arriba Makariba 2019.

Akyat: Mt. Kinabalu

Friday to Saturday
November 30 to December 1, 2018

Shivering, I flexed my numb fingers. I could see them move, but it had been a while since I had any feeling in them.

Akyat: Mt. Damas and Ubod Falls dayhike

Sunday

I finally decided on the semi-major hike in Tarlac, Mt. Damas.
