Sagada - Descent into the unknown

Going down a dark cave is sort of a mystical experience. I found out that oftentimes, the older one gets, the more fears one has. I'm a bit scared by heights but by trekking up mountains again, I hope to put this phobia behind me. It's always going to be there but I won't let it overpower and keep me from climbing.

Going down Sumaguing cave, I felt pangs of claustrophobia for about 3-5 seconds. I guess it's just human to feel afraid about the uncertainty of navigating through a dark cave.

My friend Lori had once devoted a post about whether it's never too late to start on things. I guess the wonderful thing about being alive is being given the chance by God to start, learn and discover anew. I  mean, I'm no spring chicken but it feels good to learn and enjoy new things.  Obviously, I can't turn back the hands of time but one thing I know is that I can get fitter and wiser to keep learning and doing things I enjoy.  And I won't let anybody say I'm too old to be starting on things.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. You are right...there is certainly value in sharing information this way, and in connecting with others who may not otherwise have a chance to experience life in your area.
Love your photos...Too bad I can't share the Oregon rain with the plants in Sagada!
