Q/ABC Wednesday

 I thought I had no post for Q, but here it is---a quiet lake called Balinsasayao.  
The proverb "Still waters run deep" literally applies to this lake.
Lake Balinsasayao is one of the two small but deep crater lakes rising 1,000 feet (300 meters) above sea level in Sibulan town, Negros Oriental.  Swimming is not allowed in the lake because of its depth.  Lake Balinsasayao and the adjoining Lake Danao are located in a caldera between four mountains.  The twin lakes and the surrounding areas of almost 20,000 acres are protected natural park, home to an expansive ecosystem and biodiversity.
It was quite difficult to reach the twin lakes---the motorcycle ride through rough mountainous terrain was unforgettable.  But when you're on a quest for something extraordinary, the arduous journey was well worth it.  It's a perfect place for some quiet time to commune with nature.
