|Yours truly at the main gate of Benguet Mining Corporation.|
We wanted to go up North in Baguio City, but for a change we decided to visit places we haven't been to, that means--no Burnham Park, no Camp John Hay, no Wright Park etc...
We ended up going to Benguet Mining Corporation in Balatoc, Itogon, Benguet. What made the trip more exciting was that we all became a miner for a day. We got to wear a typical miner's hard-hats and boots. We learned all the tools a miner uses to search for gold.
