Villa Verde Trail, down the Pangasinan Side, end section

Ze404. Concrete is laid down piece meal and this section of concrete is already at the about 850 meters level and near the 633meters Ridge connection with the new Pangasinan-Nueva Vizcaya Road which follows the old Villa Verde Trail down along the North-South Ridge which runs parallel east and next to the Ambayoan River. We did this on the 13th of June 2019.

This is a shorter version (original album has 85 pics) of the 5th album out of six; the first three were Balete Pass, overnight at Malico, down the West Spur. Then I made the 4th album of the Middle Section Pangasinan side and I made a 6th album about the 32nd Div old and new Monuments. In this album we follow the new Pangasinan-Nueva Vizcaya Road which follows the old Villa Verde Trail down along the North-South Ridge which runs parallel east and next to the Ambayoan River. We did this on the 13th of June 2019.

These 15 images in this Karl’s presentation are sample pictures of the state of construction at the Pangasinan-Nueva Vizcaya Road project which follows the old Villa Verde Trail.
