The “then” photo is believed to have been taken by Eduardo Masferre while the “now” photo was taken by Daniel Ziegler, an ex-Peace Corps volunteer who was based in Sagada. Thanks to Kent Sinkey for sharing these photos with us.
It is interesting to note that Sagada appears to have more pine trees now than in the past. It should give hope to Art Tibaldo and the Bantay Busol Movement.
