Les Gorges de la Falaise
Inspired by a post from a couple of our friends (thanks Courtney and Dustin), Rebecca and I rented a car yesterday to do a bit of adventuring. Our first stop, mid-morning, was not too far from the base of Mount Pelée, the mountain that you may recall we climbed a few weeks ago. Instead of climbing up into the clouds though, our destination was in the opposite direction, down into a canyon filled with fast-moving water.
Les Gorges de la Falaise is, no doubt, a popular tourist spot during the height of the season. Yesterday though, Rebecca and I only had to share the experience with one other guy. Much better, in my opinion.
After a relatively short, but steep descent (steep enough that we climbed down much of the stairs sideways), we met up with a guide who led us through the canyon to the waterfall. The entire experience took about an hour, and was, in our opinion, well worth the 7 euros that we each paid to take part. I’ll let the pics and video clips provide the rest of the description.
