Litratong Pinoy#50 Nang Matapos (When It Ended)

We had so much fun at the Overview Park and we stayed there more than we had planned. When it ended, we smelled and looked sweaty. So, we rested, had lunch and proceeded to Epol Waterfalls afterwards.

Pilipino: Masyado kaming nasiyahan sa Overview Park at tumagal doon nang higit sa aming pinlano. Nang matapos, kami ay nag-amoy at nagmukhang pawisan. Kaya, kami ay nagpahinga, nananghalian at dumiretso pagkatapos sa talon ng Epol.

Going to the waterfalls was not easy as it entailed going down from the provincial road through the forested trail. There were footholds along the way but as forest trails go, they were slippery, muddy (it has been raining every night back then) and caution was really needed going through the trail. Along the way, one can hear not only the birds chirping but also the sound of the waterfalls going louder and louder as we got nearer.

Pilipino: Hindi madali ang papunta sa talon at kailangang bumaba galing sa probinsiyal na kalsada at daraan sa landas na magubat. May mga tapakan ng paa papunta roon pero dahil nga sa magubat na lugar, ito ay madulas, maputik (panay ang ulan nang kung ilang gabi na ang nakaraan) at kailangan talagang mag-ingat sa daanan. Papunta roon, hindi lang mga ibon ang maririnig pati na rin ang palakas nang palakas na ingay ng talon habang kami ay papalapit.

When the trail ended, this was what we saw.... There were people before us enjoying the cool waters.

Pilipino: Sa katapusan ng daan, eto ang tumambad sa amin...May mga nauna na pala at masasayang naliligo sa malamig na tubig.
Epol Waterfalls,Marilog District,Davao City

Of course, we did take our turn....

Pilipino: Siyempre, hindi kami nagpahuli...
Smiling but were really, really cold. Nevertheless, we were able to take a bath, got cleaned and we got refreshed.

Pilipino: Nakangiti pero lamig na lamig iyan. Hindi na bale, kami ay nakapaligo, nakapaglinis at preskong-presko, pagkatapos.

@nortehanon..EPOL waterfalls is about more than an hour from the city. It's located before Seagull in the sky. Prepare to do a bit of hiking for 20-30 mins should you go there :D
