Bald Mountains of Isabela

It was my first time to the second largest province in thePhilippines…Isabela. I can say Isabela is one of the provinces that were filled with greens when God poured paint on Earth.

We passed by rice fields and the long enthralling zigzag road…hills and mountains on one side and ravine on the other side of the zigzag road.

I am thankful that “Buboy” is a good driver.  I am grateful as well of the fascinating sceneries. It is what made our trip fun (except for the bald mountains).

Sceneries like these are disheartening and these are all because of illegal logging that ripped through mountain ranges. I won’t be surprised if there’ll be recurring floods and deadly landslides again in Northern Luzon. Perhaps more should enroll in online masters degreeprograms in geology, to reduce the risks.

  1. Excellent photographs Rossel, although it’s shocking to see those deforested mountain sides.
