The ride from the Dapitan terminal to the resort took about 20 minutes and it was a great ride because of the wind on our faces, which we wouldn't have had if we took a van to the resort. The trip was also interesting because the road to Dakak Resort was being widened and concreted and heavy equipment had cut up part of the sides of the mountains to make way for the roads. The walls of the mountains were made of multi-colored rocks. The rocks and soil were predominantly orange, some slate grays and occasionally, there were slabs of blue that were chipped off the mountain. Rumor has it that there is actually a gold mine beneath all these rocks.
