It was a tour package deal set for us by Azalea Residences, to my surprise Mt. Sto. Tomas was included on our itinerary, extremely awesome, nabuhay bigla ang dugo ko. Been planning to go here for a long time pero ngayon lang natuloy, my big thanks to our favorite hotel in Baguio, Azalea Residences.
We're on the second day of our stay in Baguio City and we're scheduled to hike the closest high mountain in the city, Mt. Sto. Tomas. Thanks to Azalea Residences, getting to the summit was hasslefree.

|we were blessed with great weather|
We were a group of 9 but only 6 dared to trek up the summit. At fast pace, I was the one leading the trail, kasi medyo excited akong makarating sa summit. But after a few minutes, nurse Jela caught up.
