Kanlaon volcano is greeting me everyday as I report to my humble school in Barangay Balabag, this city of La Carlota. I could see it first in the morning before I proceed to my assignment school, Balabag Elementary School.

Kanlaon volcano image was taken by my handy phone camera while I was back riding at the motorized tricycle which served as our service together with my teachers in going home, Thursday, February 19 in a sunny late afternoon after our classes oby n that day.

This road in going to the right is heading to our school in Barangay Balabag, La Carlota City. This vast sugarcane field is owned by a prominent family in our place. The road on the left is leading to Sitio Bagumbayan, wherein a multi-grade extension classes of Cainaman Elementary School is located.

Kanlaon Volcano
In a distant is the sprawling, seemingly perfect cone volcano. It is a majestic, beautiful Kanlaon. It is about 2,435 m (7,989 ft) above sea level. It has a base diameter of 30 km (19 mi) and is dotted with pyroclastic cones and craters. It is frequented by mountain climbers every Holy Lent (Semana Santa) to explore the Kanlaon natural park and particularly its crater. Just within its vicinity, two pavillion resorts are situated, one belongs to Bago and the other one to La Carlota.

Kanlaon Volcano is an active volcano on Negros island in central Philippines, particularly in Negros Occidental where we reside. The stratovolcano straddles the provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, approximately 30 km (19 mi) southeast of Bacolod City, the capital and most populous city of Negros Occidental.

It is one of the active volcanoes in the Philippines and part of the Pacific ring of fire.
