    Things change over time and this place has risen to the higher levels of places I like to ride to for a variety of reasons, including the dirt ride to this place, the multiple views around here, a store with about everything I need, people are going and coming through about all day creating action of all type, and it also has the type riding I want to do now, all around here...

    Here are the Twin Peaks I named this place over... There was a girl here once, and she her twin peaks also...

    Just an optical illusion really as those peaks are not connected but happen to line-up and appear to be connected from this angle

    Here's a few more views of the surrounding terrain from this viewing area, looking up at that hill side, is sort of like standing in a portrait with the hill. There is pretty good cell phone reception here also and that is not always the case in these mountains.

    Here's MT Manunggal in the distance

    That little white dot straight up that valley is a place I call Allen Town... With the new roads shoved across the ridgelines, takes about 24 minutes to reach that place on my Huskies

    Here's the view from Allen Town back towards the Twin Peaks viewing area... Must have been taken a few weeks ago as everything looks all brown and dry

    Jason on his bike... That little store is a gold-mine due to its' location and the road system here that is so limited, meaning this single road is a very important connector across this island

    Here's some rain out here,, Just seems impossible to get rain pics to even come close to being here and seeing these weather fronts come through then leave in short measure

    Maybe next time will be different and just give me a couple days alert before you touch down over there,, What part of Cebu were you at when you came over?

    I don't know exactly where we were, and it was around 2002 or 2003, I think. We were near a hospital, obviously! We were hosted by a local Rotary Chapter and boy oh boy did they keep us fed! Wonderful, generous. Even those who had little were wiling to give. I learned.

    Hasn't changed alot since then really but maybe the last 6-7 yrs things have picked up here some, If they do not stop pouring cement in the mountains on Cebu, in another 5 yrs or so there will be no dirt roads left to ride and only the pure ST stuff across the valleys, which is very good ST riding but all that stuff is getting too hard for me to call a good time,

    These guys eat food to have a good time and it is always a good time when a Filipino is eating, They are all about friendly to the core and will give you anything you need usually if they have anything to give, I get frustrated here lots but they all take it all in stride and just accept what they are dealt,,, As long as they have rice and some pig or chicken meat, life is good!

    Not sure what is happening here but no rain really for maybe a month or more .. You can see here how dead looking the plants are and the dirt where that corn field location is really dry looking..

    Not sure what this is other than humidity in the air causing this rainy\foggy look.

    Two corn fields here... The top one was wiped out by some big winds a little while back and the one at the bottom survived.. Seems that what survives the big-winds blowing these hills and valleys is totally random..

    Couple more pics showing this dry time during the wet season .. It did rain just a little here the night before I rode here but it is so dry, it just made little impact...

    My 08 WR250 Husky here...

    The cement pouring continues here... Only ~30 yrs behind schedule?

    Here's the only machine I see here now ... I sort of like it with that small blade in front ... The idea of making a MX track here is still in my head and I'll need some way to maintain it and that small piece of equipment might fit the bill.
