Agusan River, afternoon.

wow this is very beautiful.
Agusan river! Perhaps it is the same Agusan river that traverses our town too (Compostela in COMVAL). If it is then such a long river.

Once during a flood, a baby girl drowned and was carried by currents from our town to somewhere near Prosperidad or farther, yes farther than Monkayo. I see in your picture that it is very wide in Butuan. Perhaps the one in our place is just one of the tributaries because it is not that wide there.

When I was in elementary school, some of my classmates cut classes to swim there.

It's amazing what a couple of months of rain can do. If I remember rightly, in your first photo of Agusan River, the shore wasn't this green yet. :)

hi turtle! wow i didn't know you're from agusan del norte. goodness, really?

according to wikipedia agusan river is the longest, deepest river in mindanao. ive tried tracing its length using google earth. =)

hilda-- thanks hilda. I planned on taking different agusan river photos in the future. right now im not in the photo shooting mode lately. the computers i use are having video card problems. i can't see whether the images i see are good or not thats why i havent been commenting on our cdp community lately.

tammie-- thank you =) there are days that makes photography so easy.
