A Walk Thru Hidden Valley Springs Park, Philippines

Hidden Valley Springs

About an hour and a half south of the Makati district of Manila in the Philippines

Hidden Valley is a natural wonder.  It is a wonderful walk through a tropical forest, listening to the crickets and birds.  There are 3 or 4 pools which are fed by natural springs.  If you keep walking through giant trees you will find a waterfall and very scenic stream.    This trip was taken in 2008.

The bus ride is Way Too Comfortable!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Uniquely Interesting Roads

The topic for this weeks challenge by Cee’s Photography is Roads: country, freeways, streets.  This group of photos are of roads that I thought had something of special interest.  I call them my Uniquely Interesting Roads

 

Lake Meredith, near Fritch in the Texas Panhandle.  The sign tells the story about why this is uniquely interesting.  It’s the only sign like this that I’ve ever seen.

A road to someone’s house in Lebanon Missouri.  So I guess this road is a very long driveway.

This is the loop road in the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.  As you can see it’s a pretty popular road.  This is what I imagine roads to be like for stage coaches in the 1800’s.  I was very bumpy.

In Spokane Missouri, the High School is on both sides of this city street.  Their solution, build over it. 

Who needs a cross walk ?!

A sand road through a patch of jungle on the island of Okinawa.

Not quite as unique as the others but interesting none the less.  Amish country in southern Missouri.

A patch of highway in southwestern Nebraska.  The unique and interesting part is that we were following a tanker truck and small crop dusting plane.

The road along the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  We were following 2 German cyclists on recumbent bicycles.

And these last three pictures are taken on the main street of Oakland Nebraska.  I was fascinated with this road because it was completely made with bricks.  Something I have very rarely seen.
