Who needs church?
Nature is divine.

My feet were aching, I guess my shoes were too hard and I'm not yet used to wearing it with a heavy pack walking uphill. I received heavier beating than anyone in our group because of my heavy pack and rock hard trekking shoes. I was cursing along the way and already thinking of spending the night in one of the guesthouses in the trail. The trek was so long, it took us forever to reach the other side. But then we were greeted by these sacred hills. Such magnificent view couldn't be less than divine. In a setting like this, it's really hard to think there's no God or Creator. And oh yeah, I almost forgot about the pain brought about by my pack and shoes. ALMOST..
