#159 A Mossy Forest



The hike up to Mt. Pulag Nature Park took us through a mossy forest so damp that most of the trees were covered in moss. The trails were chilly, quiet, and rather eerie, even if they only skirt the edge of the forest as they wind themselves along the mountain's slopes. But every now and then, a shaft of light finds it's way through the thick forest canopy and onto the forest floor.  


Somewhere along the trail, we heard a scampering among the leaves and I briefly saw the hind legs and tail of what looked like a rat of sorts, furiously climbing up a branch. Then it was gone. Cloud rats are  nocturnal creatures rarely seen by day trekkers, but who knows if I got lucky? Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: On the edge of a forest looking in, it's easy to underexposure your shot because the interior receives much less light. I was lucky that a shaft of light found its way inside, reducing the contrast, and making today's postcard possible.)

Where in the world is Mt. Pulag, Kabayan??

But wait, there's more...
For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (murilloarnel@yahoo.com), one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country. But if you feel generous, help me uplift the lives of the Children of Payatas.  No donation is too big or too small. Get in touch with Fr. Aldrin Suan at aldrinsuan@yahoo.com of the Vincentian Missionaries in the Philippines. As always, thanks and enjoy.)
