Amburayan river short walk featuring LA UNION's provincial WELCOME ARCHES

"From a distance, these Welcome Arches look like a portion of a giant elaborate engagement rings, a union proposal of the province to each and everyone passing through"
These Welcome Arches are the first greeters when one enters the territorial boundaries of a certain place through roads. They greatly reflect the character of each place they serve upon. They are also there not just to welcome but also to impress, as they say, first impressions last.
This time let's take a look at the provincial Welcome arches of La Union.

I went to the northernmost municipality of the province to take a look at the Welcome arch before a bridge at Sudipen, La Union and took a short walk along the Amburayan river.

If you find this story/blogpost interesting and/or had helped you in any way (in your researches, works, travels, blogs, adventures, homeworks at school, a personal project and more), I'd like to hear a word or two from wonderful people like you or simply Like "pagnapagna" in Facebook. I'd be very thankful. It gives me inspirations. Cheers!

-my pagnapagna-

At around 7:30 in the morning, i was at the provincial Welcome arch taking photos and videos. A few minutes later, i decided to go down by the Amburayan river and take a walk.
Here were the photos i took on my short walk along the Amburayan river.

Look what I found. A beer bottle
A shed along the river
Inside the shed hangs this sign
He was washing a big pan by the river
rock piles at the river
At a waiting shed by a dirt road, along the river
 hangs a trap for crayfish made from used plastic bottle.
At a shaded area overlooking the stone piles.

After my short walk, I went to Sudipen town proper and near the Municipal Hall, I bought a "pasiking" which i will be using on my short day hikes.
