This is the wet and mossy forest in a shallow gully south of the summit of Marapara West. This was as far as my scouting party could reach while blazing a new trail from Tinagong Dagat to Patag in April 2011.
The slope to the left belongs to the North Ridge of Marapara West Peak while the slope to the right is the west side of Marapara Peak. The narrow valley in-between sustains Malisbog Creek. This photo was taken in December 2000.
