Thanks SR.

I meant to mention in my last couple of posts that geology of these areas are amazing. On the hike to Kulap they had some rock that had ocean fossils in it that were found nearby at around 10,000 feet. The layers of the earth that you can see at odd angles and many times bent in wild curves is astonishing. To consider the force it took to raise rock out of ocean beds to many times over 14,000 feet and twist it around is mind boggling. Considering the gazillions of years of history represented by those thousands of feet of layers is like trying to fathom the stars. Outside my limited mental capacity.

You might want to check it out someday. They do have a bit of mining going on down here, ya know?
