NOAA Photo Library Image - cgs00475

A triangulation party at the foot of Mt. Galintan in the Davao Gulf region of Mindanao, Philippine Islands. The party but a few minutes before had emerged from the woods in the background through which they had traveled by compass alone for a day and a half. The vegetation is cogon grass of moderate height. However, even here it reaches to the men's waists.
