Zf164. The Rocky, Monolith Peak or Peaks of Mount Balakibok. This peak or these peaks are prominent visible from just about anywhere in Olongapo. The Kalaklan Ridge leads to the peaks and a road and power lines to the Dizon Mine run along the ridge. The power lines are gone now and the road is […]

Zf167. My track in the Matain River Valley to the Dizon Mine Pass zoomed in. In the valley the trail was a pretty good trail, easy to follow.
