Two Trees No More

 Photo showing the Two Trees taken earlier this year

Two Trees, the most famous peak of the Bukidnon Provincial Tree Park, is now down to one. 

The strong winds of Typhoon Pablo last December 4 uprooted one of the two trees which stood on top of the hill overlooking Malaybalay City.
My friend James, whose house in Capitol Village has an unobstructed view of the Two Trees, took these photos during the onslaught of Typhoon Pablo.

This first photo showed the two trees still standing amidst the rain and fierce wind:

The Two Trees is a popular hiking destination located within the Bukidnon Provincial Tree Park  in Malaybalay City. It can be reach through a short hike of about 30 minutes (or more for newbies) starting from the Capitol Village (the former Gawad Kalinga site at the back of the Provincial Jail). On its peak, the awesome views of Malaybalay City proper, Mount Kitangald range, Can-ayan rice fields and other distant mountains can be seen. It is also a favorite route of elite runners for their uphill and high altitude training.
