“The basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being…” Romans 1:19-20
In the previous post, I took you to the Magasang and Magsapad rock formations. Today, I am taking you to Macadlao, another rock formation. It is also located in the charming and laid-back town of Biri.
I was blessed with a lovely weather the morning I went to Macadlao with one of my most trusted friends who is a Manileña. From the shoreline, we walked through rows of mangroves—some full-grown, some still young trees.
From afar, Macadlao looks like a not-so huge rock.
But it is actually a huge one. It is, however, relatively easy to climb. I think even an 8 or 9-year-old can manage the terrain. The views at the top of Macadlao is exhilarating.
On one side, you’ll see this patch of land covered with green. I dubbed this as my mini-Batanes 🙂
On the other side, you will see the deep-blue water and the Magasang rock formation from afar.
Then there’s this very distinct “crater” that looks like a footprint. People from Biri actually call it “The Big Foot.”
There is actually more to Macadlao than what you see the moment you arrive. In front, it looks like an ordinary rock formation.
But when you’re up there and you try to look down to the other side like what my friend did in this picture,
this is what you will see:
a massive flat rock with shades of white, yellow, brown, and orange.
Now, let’s go down and walk on that flat space. This is how the “back” of the rock formation looks like.
Here are some more pics of Macadlao.
That ends our Macadlao tour, my dear blogging friends. I hope this post has inspired you to pack your things and have your picture taken on top of Macadlao formation…like this 😉
