Photographer's Note

The Igorots of the cordillera carved these mountains into ricefileds more than 500 years ago. Above 3,500 ft, flatlands are a rarity, so these peole have to make do with the little land thay have. Each step of this virtual stairway to heaven is about 15 feet high (see visual reference with the houses below). This is particularly tricky, since each step has to hold water, irrigated from streams above. Simply amazing!
