    Of Implements And Second Chances

    To freeze to death wasn't the way I imagined myself to go, but the icy air slicing through my lungs and the frost coursing in my veins made it damn sure feel like it was exactly how I was going. As we slept, the midnight downpour found its way to the tent, gathering in a pool of inch-deep mountain rain. My sleeping bag was soiled, and the bud of cold blossomed beneath me.

    A Trip To Mariveles The San Miguel Peak

    After embracing the remarkable view of the Sisiman Bay, it is time for us to go closer! Our tour coordinator took us at the foot of the so-called San Miguel Peak. This enormous rock formation is sitting beside the pebbled beach of Sisiman Resort.

    We didn't get much details about San Miguel Peak but we were told that the rock formation got its name from the company that merely owned most of the lands in Bataan, the San Miguel Corp. The rock formation is said to be an ideal spot for some rappelling adventure.

    The rock formation is around 700ft high and they said that it requires around 20 ...
