Thanks for the welcome.
To Brian D. Bray, I think you mean Ifugao, not Ifugo. Ifugao is such a nice place. If you love the mountains, the wilderness, this is the place to go. Been there once during our trailing adventure a few years back. The trip was rigorous, exhaustive, sore butt (from motorcycle ride) but its all worth it once you reach the place.
There are also a couple of beekeepers on that area. Their colonies are positioned just a few inches from the cliff. They are living on the edge, literally. One wrong move and the beekeeper will find himself/herself plunging into a deep river 100ft below(they don't have any safety harness, ropes etc). Nobody has died eversince, but a few have fallen, and have to traverse for another 12 hours to go back. They dont look at it as hazardous, but rather adventurous hobby/job. Im just glad that my colony is not located in Ifugao :)
Baguio is a city on top of the mountains. It was the last stronghold of the Japanese Imperial Army during WW2, evident from several war relics that can be found in the city. The City was also built during the American occupation to provide a place of relaxation when people wants to get away from the summer heat of the lowlands, that is why a lot of places are named after them. Camp John Hay, Burnham Park, Kennon Road, Wright Park, etc.
I have started browsing thru that forums, and found it to be very informative. Some of my questions were already answered just by browsing thru. Hope to share some info also in the future.
Right now, my bees are busy foraging thru the sunflower bloom. Baguio color is now becoming yellow from the sunflower bloom. This weekend I'll try to check if I can harvest some of the honey. I got this colonies as 3-framer colonies last June, now both have double box, and a honey super.
To Cindi, Brian, Dave, Johnny, and to everybody,
Thank you very much for the welcome. Im happy to be part of this community.
