... in Roseau to take on the hike. As they passed, the guides and Kelvin would speak to each other in a Patois language that the rest of us could only pick up a few words from. When the group had gone ahead into the Valley, Kelvin laughed and marveled at the group - it was 1:30 PM at the time, meaning they wouldn't reach the Boiling Lake until at least 2 PM, and wouldn't leave until at least 2:30 - with a 3+ hour hike back, that put them near the end at 5:30 to 6 ...

... the Sari Sari River, but the rocks were still quite slippery, so we had to take our time. At this point, I recalled what the guidebook we'd brought with us said about the trail: "The first hour until you reach the Breakfast River is relatively easy with a wide, well manicured trail. After the river, the trail gets a lot tougher and steeper." Just great. On the plus side, the rain had stopped, with only residual water dripping from the canopy above. We all took off ...

... saved the camera multiple times throughout the day. It became clear soon that our guide (let's call him Travis) was the most capable of the guides, although the others weren't bad either.

It may have been the hardest hike I'd ever done. It was without a doubt the sweatiest. I had been on the island long enough to lose any advantage the Colorado altitude might have given me. But not anything near long enough to acclimate to the humidity. I began to wonder, is it possible that I have sweat this much? Or has the air just begun to condense on my skin like dew? ...

... further into the island’s interior, arriving at the Emerald Pool parking lot at 11:45. We were given 45 minutes to hike out through the jungle to the pool, which took about 10 minutes, and then to swim in the natural pool that sits at the base of a waterfall. Not everyone got in the water, but I wasn’t going to pass up this unique opportunity. I swam in the pool’s chilly water for about 15 minutes, ...
