Razor Grass: a West Indian plant (Scleria scindens), the triangular stem and the leaves of which are edged with minute sharp teeth.

Note: After leaving what seems like several liters of blood in the Grenadian jungle today, and earlier this week on a different hike, Rebecca and I are now 100% confirmed non-fans of razor grass! We may, in fact, both be scarred physically and psychologically for life after today.

Backstory: We spent all day today hiking to the top of the highest peak in Grenada, Mt. St. Catherine, over to another peak and then down a LONG alternate path to the cars. Razor grass was prevalent between the two peaks. Unfortunately our camera’s battery died just before we began the trek. Hopefully our friends can forward us some pics for the blog, after they recover of course.
