Saving a River

I've been residing in Taytay, Rizal for almost two decades and I never thought of exploring hidden treasures around the province of Rizal. I always dream of traveling around the country and discover its beauty. Amazingly, our country has a total of 7,107 islands and exploring it must take one step at a time. I believe each place has its own story to tell. No wonder why traveling is a simultaneous act of both learning and enjoying the gifts that God had given us!

As a start, I begin my journey in exploring some hidden treasures located around our place. A couple of years ago I started searching for tourist attractions in Taytay, Rizal. The first on my list is the Tres Escalon Falls. I was surprised that this ecology park is only one-jeepney ride from home. For almost 20 years, I never thought that there's a place like this near from our home.

 I wasn't really lucky after all since the first time I went in Tres Escalon Ecology Park way back 2 years ago. The park is composed of a basketball court, a botanical garden and some area designated for gatherings such as birthdays and weddings. The park is located inside Melendres Village. The waterfalls is located below the said amenities and you must go down on a very steep muddy path just to be near with the landmark. When I went there, the area leading to the waterfalls is closed and the path is quite slippery. So I didn't attempt to trek down alone. There are no any officials present around the area to guide you through the park. Maybe they were having an improvement plan during that time about saving the Tres Escalon Falls.

Good thing, I was able to take some photographs of the river, not the waterfalls. To be honest, I really like the place, it is quiet and peaceful. What I didn't like is the presence of trash and garbage polluting the ecology park.

These photographs were taken two years ago. I'm planning to visit this place again and I'm expecting that there will be improvements in the park. You can't easily notice the presence of garbage on some photographs in just one look because of the black and white color.

Beautiful places like this are all created by God and we are His stewards and caretakers of it. Thus, it is our responsibility to take care of these things. A simple act of throwing your garbage on the right place is a great start in saving the environment.
