... only to get worse. Outside of the abrasions, our muscles were fully fatigued - each step you could feel your body telling you that "you're on your own, man". Our trip back out was fully reverse of what we did to get in, but some sections were harder to do in reverse. Perhaps more appropriately, the mental and muscle fatigue of the journey up to that point made fine control over your body a lot harder.

... 8-12" in diameter, they were made up of what looked like bundles of black wires. The tree fern logs were very tough and fibrous, acting like a grip-tape no matter how much moisture there was.

... lovely minutes floating on my back and watching the water cascade down from above. Such serenity!

Returned to the van at 12:30 and from there it was a 45-minute trip back to the Roseau cruiser pier via a newly repaved but massively winding road 1,800 feet down the mountain into town. We had to stop for a few minutes at one point as a two-man crew used a chainsaw to put apart a tree that had fallen across ...
