I have a few experiences in the past as well. When I first started my date with Cerok Tokun, I had lost the sight on my next trail beyond a flatland and was almost led into the wild by a false one. I was lucky enough to turn back and there it was. Why it was missing earlier?
To be able to feel the sunlight and blue sky is a blessing, especially after a long stretch of steep ascending path. This matches the feeling about seeing the light at the end of a tunnel.
But if you ask whether I like the track, the hike, and the jungle, then I have to ask again, why not?

Some rocks are properly stacked at a few places as you can see in the next picture. I wonder whether they are natural or the other way round. There are certain religious beliefs in some countries that link to the stacking of stones.

The starting point of this track (I shall call it Trek at Dam side) is found nearby the small dam.
To make it more interesting, this starting point is marked with a wooden "arch". On the left of the picture that is the dam. Observation on the trek itself I confirmed that, though not as many as my normal jungle trek (I shall name it Trek at Pool Side), it must have been regularly used by fellow hikers.This portion of the jungle exhibited no animals except the butterflies again. The small blue one led me at the beginning and the big black butterfly hovered around in the usual manner. Yes, see no is never equal to hear no. The overhead smashing sounds told me who they were. Plentiful of half bitten fruits or skins which were found scattered along the trail concurred to that. Luckily those monkeys have yet to learn to throw sticks at me.
Fallen trees and rotten woods are forever parts of the jungle, they can be seen everywhere, either in a friendly or ugly manner.
The smell the jungle was as usual, but it was a little odd not to find a creek nor waterfall around, the prolong dry weather recently may have effect on this.
And this is the end of my today post as well before I say good night to you. I shall talk more on the Trek at Dam Side in my next update.

They danced under my flashlight like a group of ballet dancers on toe. I know little about ballet but Swan Lake is my favourite. Look at their ballet tutus, and the music was playing.

I may be wrong if we go back to the habit of human: some of my friends do not like durian. Then I deduced that firstly these fruits may either be edible or not, and secondly those monkeys, squirrels or birds certainly do not like these fruits.
At the end, all my conclusions are only derived from the standpoint of human. I am not in the place of those animals to understand their thought well.

I do not have the answer for you, but deep in my heart, I think they are.

It was kind of disappointment for not able to trek a new trail that I shall not hike by my own self. It looked no different from my normal trek, but this would not tell the actual situation when the journey was kicked off. By the way, the starting point of this trail is nearby the dam I have talked about in my earlier post.
You can see the small dam at the background
I shall come back next week, if I am lucky enough then I shall join someone on the new adventure.
And day by day, bit by bit, I hope I am able to locate all the available routes.
(It must be fun to know your belief about the jungle and in the jungle. You, who are from different parts of the world, of different background and different religion).

This was the view of sunset at a river bank nearby my jogging trail. Sunset colours are more intense than sunrise colours, since there are generally more particles in the evening air than in the morning air.
I must say I like sunrise more than sunset because of the feeling to start off a new day after a long night rest. The atmosphere is cool and quiet. Whereas wandering around while the sun is ready to set means I am as tired as this giant star. I have to feel and smell the heat of warm earth unwillingly.
After the sun has set, I shall enter into a world of darkness, if I stay further. This is what I do not like to face with, not to mention how it looks by the moonlight, especially in the jungle . It is anyway so good to say good morning after the sunrise.

This last one though looked messy but it demonstrated a different emotion from others. Its richness of the branches definitely contributed to this.
It was a bright shining colourful morning, but what I have shown do not actually tell the truth. This is not my intention. The odd guy only tries to be a little different in his day.

Lantanas can be easily seen in the wild and along footpaths in my neighbourhood. The charming colours had attracted my wife for a long time until one day we found them along our jogging trail, we decided to upgrade them to one of our ornamentals.
One thing that I have overlooked, and only got to know by today, is lantanas are mildly toxic.

I found my friend staring at a Blackbird, I commented what a stupid idiot he was. I spent my evening bending towards an ugly creature, taking pictures of those unpleasant looks. Who am I???

I walk through my hard disk, and hike from one folder to another, looking for some wonder to serve the desired purpose, to refresh my tired brain and body. I have temporary lost in the tug of war game to my bread earning priority.
I have my next button being located near to the bamboo trees, immediately in front of the pavilion, in the bush of greenery, on the little purple wild flowers which are showering in the rain. I need no any close-up in order to fully understand them but a distant view in the lush green is good enough to give me a break.
We always insist on going back to basic, I just want to go back to nature.
