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.
