(visited by Raymund Madronero)

01-Sep-2002 -- This is my second attempt to visit the confluence. Sad to say though, I went a little farther this time. In one of the trackpoints recorded by my gps (12°59.7682N 124°00.5539E) I should have been closer at roughly 1,090 m but I failed to notice it. Passing through the diversion road bypassing Sorsogon City in Bicol, Philippines I took these pictures. Picture #1 is that of the road pointing towards west, Picture #2 is that of the same road pointing east and Picture #3 is the reading of my gps. If my estimates are correct, the confluence point would be found within the area under the Bacon-Manito Geothermal Project between the National Power Corporation and the Philippine Geothermal, Inc. This area still has much of the lush vegetation and forest cover.
