Photo Hunt 7: Steps


PSHunt

I'm quite late in posting my photo hunt for the week. Blame it on Michael Scofield. I watched a few episodes of Prison Break this afternoon to catch up on what I have missed. I'm here now posting my steps photos. :)

These photos were taken during the officers and managers' team building in my previous company held at Clark Air Base. As part of the management committee we visited our team to show support on this activity. We had our own team building a few weeks before theirs but we did not undergo this kind of physical activity. We thought we 'escaped' this grueling run, roll, crawl, climb stuff. But our managers chanted each of our names to try at least one of these. No, I don't want to cross logs which are like five feet above the ground. I don't want to crawl on the grass under barbed wires only a few inches above the head. And I cannot do the monkey bar. Since I'm not that afraid of heights, I chose to climb this 8-story high ladder. There's harness anyway and we have a guide waiting for us on top to help us go over the other side so we can safely go down. Poise was non-existent at this time but it was a great experience for all of us! The team too appreciated the fact that as their leaders we are willing to support them, go with them all the way, no matter what it takes. :)


I promised my daughter to post too her picture taken at the steps of Botanical Garden in Baguio City. This place is also known as Igorot Village. Igorots is the general reference to the six ethno-linguistic groups born on Central Cordillera. This is a nice place to just walk around and take pictures of the plants and village huts. There's also artists from Baguio National Arts Club which offers to make your portrait in a matter of 15 minutes. We tried it as I've mentioned in my other post. My, they can sketch really well that fast.

Hey Lynn,

You have very nice photos! I especially like the one with the steps from the garden. That's probably got a lot to do with the fact that I love to go these kind of gardens!

Regards,
Ilse

Thos photos of the team building are spectacular, but the one of your daughter in the botanical garden has to be my favourite! Lovely.

Jennifer said...

Wow - given the choices, I think that's what I'd have picked too, but it still looks hard!

I remember doing the first ones way back when I was in basic training for the Air Force - a very, very long time ago!

Hi Lynn --

Don't think you're that late. All in all, it helps that the Philippines is many hours ahead of many other places! :)

Also, wow re the team building exercise you successfully went through! Good for you and you must be pretty fit!!

Great to have you stop by today.

Gattina said...

You had to climb on that ?? How is that possible when you are an employé ? Is that a kind of military service ?
Anyway, I prefer by far the beautiful botanical garden with your cute daughter !

jennyr said...

letha said...

The garden looks lovely as does your little one, I used to do assault courses with those big ladder type things, we never had safety ropes though.

I really like the step photo with your daughter, mostly because I would not be too excited about having to climb the first ones! Have a great weekend, Lynn, and thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek.

donut said...

I love the last one, that's a great shot.

ChupieandJ'smama said...

Your daughter is a cutey and the botanical gardens looks like a beautiful place to visit. The ladder you climbed would scare me. Good job!

Wow, climbing that ladder was pretty cool, I'm furry impressed!

And I loved the steps in the garden.

GEWELS said...

Nice combination. I would have a hard time getting OVER the top of that ladder.

Angelika said...

Your daughter is a cutie! :-)

I wouldn't not try the top steps for anything, LOL.

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Lynn. Thanks for sharing these great photos.

I'm terrified of heights and that 8-story high ladder is a formidable task for me.

I love the photo of your daughter at the Botanical Garden. The pretty surroundings compliment such a lovely girl.

Happy weekend!

eph2810 said...

I have never been to a 'boot-camp'...Looks like a lot of work...but perfect pictures for the photo hunt this week.

I love the picture of your daughter. It looks like a beautiful place to walk around.

Sue said...

Wow! I'm deathly afraid of heights, so I never would have made it over. That's great that you did that. That's a beautiful shot of your daughter!

MCWC said...

Now THATS what I call some steps! Unbelievable! I'd love to visit that place.

jmb said...

Two great photos, but so different. Loved them both

srp said...

Love those stone steps and the colorful plants that are to the sides. Now that 8 story ladder thing I would just have to pass up. Dizzy. Dizzy.

jenn in holland said...

Excellent shots. I love those steps your daughter insisted on posting. Just lovely.
Thanks for coming round to mine.

mar said...

Awsome pics of the team building!! The steps and your daughter make such a beautiful picture!
happy weekend!

pat said...

Oh your daughter's photo is beautiful!!

Thanks for stopping by - Happy Weekend!

Jose said...

You mention one of my favorite shows "Prison Break" doesn't it seem like they take a "step" forward and two "steps" back in that show. And now we have to wait for the new season to begin,grrrr.

Wow, nice pictures, I wouldn't mind trying that myself but my body doesn't respond as easy anymore.

UKZoe said...

With my husband being a scout leader for a number of years, my boys often got to do stuff like that much younger than the other kids because we all went on camp together. I used to say "I love that they get to do these things, but PLEASE don't make me watch"

Incog & Nito said...

Great shots. Both very appropriate for the theme. Happy weekend.

Barbara said...

I like the picture with your daughter, what a great shot.

Mitey Mite said...

Your daughter and the botanical garden are beautiful, and I am very impressed that you climbed the ladder.

ashleystravel said...

Great shots! An what a beautiful girl!

chateau said...

i remember those steps on botanical garden. We used to picnic and play there back when i was a child. It hasn't changed much since- which is good. at least the trees are still there!
The photos in Clark look like from a scene on Prison Break haha!

PastorMac's Ann said...

8 story laddar - wow! That must have been some experience. Great pictures!

Glad you daughter had you include her picture too. It's perfect for the theme.

Nice job.

SASSY MOM said...

Neat pics!

The picture of your daughter is my fave. She's lovely.

Happy Sunday!

Caylynn said...

Terrific photos for steps. :) Your daughter looks so cute standing on those steps. And the botanical garden looks beautiful! That would be a great place to visit.

Tracey said...

That is wonderful, what an experience. In our training we climb these as well, but not as high, that would have been awesome. I love the photo of your daughter as well, it really captures personality.

Teena said...

That looks like fun :)

Thanks for stopping by mine :)

Cats ~ Goats ~ Quotes said...

Neat!! Two completely different kinds of steps :)
I like the second one best!

meeyauw said...

I would definitly enjoy your daughter's trip more than your trip! You were adventurous to do that. Good for you!

yenjai.net said...

I don't know if I can climb up that ladder.
You are great

DK & The Fluffies said...
