Mount Apo climbers

               At the entrance of our subdivision, one can see a breathtaking view of Mount Apo on a clear day. Only clouds can hinder the view. Mount Apo  is the highest peak in the Philippines. It is overlooking Davao City. It  can be seen from other places in southern part of Mindanao. Its elevation is 2,954 meters.
             My second daughter had wished to climb Mount Apo. One day, she told me that she would climb the mountain. I never thought about it seriously until her college friends  planned about climbing. Though exhausted from the college intramurals where she was one of the softball players . Their team won.  Together with her classmates and professor, they climbed the mountain. Unfortunately, her own pictures were destroyed by flood .
            My youngest daughter had shared  her thoughts of climbing Mount Apo. The opportunity came when the  head of  office planned Mount Apo climbing during the company's anniversary. There were many employees who signed in and  joined. My daughter was one of them. My daughters had also their own stories to tell regarding their experiences in mountain climbing,
              Shown below is my daughter Jesenie at the top of Mount Apo.
