A close up from Google Earth of the start of the walk.
I parked my car in the village hall compound of Lucanin Village. I asked this Gentleman who was very friendly. Lot of people on the street-local National Elections today. DMM # 18 is just a couple 100 yards south from here.
As I left the Lucanin Valley I came across this religious retreat. It was a large beautiful place with swimming pool.
DMM # 18. The swimming pool of the Baptist Retreat. All about one half km north of DMM # 18
DMM # 18, on the beach of the Baptist Retreat. The point there is the Locanin Point. Behind that fence on the left side is even a more,more beautyful place, called 'Rainbow Spring Resort'.
DMM # 19. Continuing my walk, back on the highway. This is a typical view inland when not restricted. DMM # 19 is getting closer.
DMM # 19, looking north. This marker is in front of the Rainbow Spring Resort, a very beautyful place.
DMM # 19 and it's sponsor, no less then the famous...
DMM # 19 in front of what I call the Rainbow Spring Resort.
DMM # 19, across the street from the marker an other beautyful place, the 'Forest Garden'. Would have loved to drunk a beer here but it was to early.
DMM # 19. With this map at this location I'm a little ahead of myself. DMM # 19 is about a half km south or back from here.
This long time logo from the FAME organization has been modified by the 'corregidor.org' web master. I like it very much!
DMM # 19. Two of three pools at the Rainbow Spring Resort.
DMM # 19. The entrance of the Rainbow Spring Resort. The marker is just passed the gate.
DMM # 19. About 300 meters passed the marker is the gate to this outfit which owns the long pier in the previous pic. Between this outfit and the Rainbow Spring Resort is a small fishing village called 'Tacloban II'.
DMM # 19. A little further north is a pier for the 1st Petroleum Related Co.
DMM # 19, leaving it behind and contining into this village Batangas II. The distance between DMM # 19 and DMM # 20 at Lamao is maybe 2 to 3 km.
DMM # 19 is way back now and once apon a time this was a factory. This place is now being demolished.
The big picture of this Lamao section from Google. This section I walked on 29th Oct 2007. But I also walk the side roads to learn about the geography of this WWII Battlefield.
DMM #19 is maybe 1 km back now. Right is the entrance to the very large 'Batangas II Subdivision'. Than following that is a refinery and who knows what else.
DMM # 19 is long behind us. To the right is what I believe is a refinery and powerplant. High voltage power lines start here or are providing power to this place.
DMM # 19. This abandoned section of the old National road is between the highway and the refinery. Did it look that way during the war?
DMM # 19. The gate to one of the many industries between DMM #19 and DMM # 20.
DMM # 19. An other gate to one of the many industries between DMM #19 and DMM # 20.
2013-02-12 Near those steps in the last image is this large concrete block. It came from what explosion? It looks a little similar like the mystery concrete near the Japanese gun on the Morrison Hill slopes.
2013-02-12 Barrio San Isidro had a separate road towards the Stockade Level and crossed a small creek with this bridge between the Barrio and the Nipa Quarters.

This map pretty much describes what I seen so far as what is left from Barrio San Isidro and what is in this album.
2013-02-12 San Isidro is on a rise and here are some steps between the two different in height street levels. These steps are on the SE corner of barrio San Isidro near the Nipa Quarters.
2008-09-23 View from the former Barrio San Isidro Rise towards the Middleside parade grounds. The house was the former and post WWII Aviary residence and is now used by the American couple doing research and promotion for Corregidor.
