Eb-bayan Mini-Park

avatar
(Edited)



We often pass by along this area along the Halsema Highway whenever we go to the provincial capital but we never really took any chance to take a look. And so while on the way home from our short getaway last week, we decided to have a quick stop and look around.



I had to walk back for about 30-50 meters to it because there isn't a good parking spot and that area is prone to accidents so the husband had to drive past by it. While he checked the car tires and stuff, I took myself for a wee tour.



It's funny that I only noticed of the name of the place at that time. "Eb-bayan" is a local dialect which basically means "resting spot." It is quite befitting, well at least for us who stopped over. I wonder if the locals treat it as such though. It is a bit unkempt and grasses were growing tall compared to the previous months when it was clean and well-maintained.


Even so, the area has a certain aura that is kind of inviting. Can't ignore the flowers too.



There were parts of it that I haven't walked on because the tall grass were wet from the previous night's rain. I do hope that the next time, the grasses would have been cut and the place tidied up. It would be cool to stroll along the 100-meter or so stretch and take photos of the mini-statues farther down and the other plants too.

And while under the hut, I did imagine it would be awesome to have a hot cup of black coffee and let time pass by :)



Well, that short stop was worth the while :)

Smile... laugh often... love more... be happy and grateful ALWAYS!

I knew there was a cup of cafe there somewhere hahahahahaha!!!
Looks like a beautiful area, and there are a lot of places that have gone by the wayside in lack of maintenance as a financial thing or some other goofy reason. Excellent, and pretty photos @ifarmgirl!

Can't get away with coffee so I had to put one there, lol! In fact, I'm needing a cup right now haha!

It is a nice little place, hopefully they will make it grand again. The rainy season will make the place like a jungle if they wouldn't tidy it up soon :)

Thank you James, appreciate your kind words.

I keep on noticing this area whenever I go to up in the mountains. I find it not interesting though. 😁 Never knew the name of this mini-park until now.

A hot coffee would be perfect in this spot. However, any vendor would be risking their life stationing here. I've heard and seen this portion of the road washed out few times before.

I also just learned about the name last week, lol! It was a little refreshing for me when we stopped there and was thankful na walang red paints (momma spat) under the hut, lol!

I didn't know that place had been washed out before, or yung sa baba siguro.

That's the spot where there's abundant of water right? Where some vegetable trucks usually stop? If yes, then that has been washed out before, maybe more than once.
I don't know the name of the place where it is located since I don't live there but I kind of recognize the place. 🙂

I think we're talking about a different place :) This is somewhere in Atok. I'm not sure which km it is but I have not observed any erosion in that area.
