Ridge/ABC Wednesday


 R is for Ridge

 Tagaytay ridge is prized for its view of the Taal lake and volcano.  It's the edge of Taal caldera that stretches to approximately 32 kilometers  (20 miles) from Mount Batulao to Mount Sungay where the People's Park in the Sky is located.  Elevations range from 2,000 feet to 2,326 feet above sea level.  Not sure though if it's a crater ridge, a volcanic caldera ridge or a fault ridge.
A ridge is a geological feature consisting of a chain of mountains or hills that form a continuous elevated crest for some distance.
