Traveling from Pangasinan to Bulacan involves passing through the 94-kilometer-long Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway or SCTEX in Central Luzon. While aboard a bus, I grabbed the opportunity to take a picture of Mount Arayat.
According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, the 1,026-meter-high land formation is classified as an inactive volcano. In folklore, Mount Arayat is also said to be the abode of the sorceress Maria Sinukuan. Mount Arayat is also found in the backdrop of some movies by the Filipino actor Lito Lapid.
