Finally we reach the end of the trail, the top of the mountain. Yes, it is 20 minutes one way and not, as we thought, a loop. We'll have to traverse down what we just climbed up. But first we get photos of the wonderful view of Roseau and the Caribbean. There is also a ginormous Christ on the cross here, along with a cannon. I realize the cross here is the tiny one I could see from town. Now I really am tired!
We walk back down. The trip down takes ...
... vista and each other. A short trip back down the hill and it was lunch time. For my money, this was the better local cuisine meal Jen and I ate on the island - we each got 3 half spiny lobsters (or 1.5 lobsters each) filled with meat on a bed of rice and beans, a side of salad and a side of fresh plantains. Absolutely wonderful food, looking right out onto the bay where children played in the water. The children were all out of school for Christmas break, so they were ...

Also, many of the children (like many children all over the world) don't care so much about their heritage and are more concerned with the latest youtube music video than their traditional music.

Also, the tour guide shared a lot with us about Dominica's hydroelectric plants. Apparently, a significant portion of the island's power comes from hydro. There is a ton of water coming down the mountains anyway, so they put it in wooden pipes (the sulfuric content would mess up metal or other pipes) and ...
... since I am writing this blog, I obviously managed and survived without any ill effects.
The boiling lake is a three mile hike that starts with a steady climb up through a most amazing rainforest. It consists of three phases, a slog up through the rainforest, a contour walk along the top of the mountains, and then a descent into the Valley of Desolation and the caldera.
