We left for Ambuklao past noon. Aboard Azalea's shuttle service, we took the road that leads to Ambuklao Dam. It wasn't a simple road trip by the way, because somewhere in the middle of nowhere, our car malfunctioned and needed some time to get fixed, thus we did random things.
|nasiraan kami kalagitnaan ng byahe|
Random Thing #1: Pose on the road as if you own it
|oh yeah! My Road..|
Random Thing #2: Run like an ostrich when you spotted something interesting
|Those travel bloggers just ran all of a sudden when someone shouted, "hanging bridge"|
Random Thing #3: Cross a hanging bridge
|for no reason, we crossed this hanging bridge...|
Random Thing #4: Lay on the road
|I took advantage when there's no car passing the road!|
The road is mine! *evil laugh*
Random Thing #5: Take pictures endlessly until the car got fixed
|like this almost dried up river under the bridge.|
At 03:20 PM, we reached the dam. The trip to Ambuklao Dam lasted for about an hour and a half (minus the stranded time of course) from Baguio city, passing by some beautiful river and landslide area.

During its early years, it was the biggest and highest in the far east, pero napag-iwanan na siya sa paglipas ng panahon. But still, it is an engineering marvel that we, Filipinos should be proud of.
