Straight to the Source
With a front effecting the area, we’ve had nothing but squally weather since we’ve been on Nevis. As I mentioned yesterday, that’s great for keeping the boat clean but not so great for exploring the island. Earlier this week, we made plans with our friend Aeneas from Christophe Harbour for him to come to Nevis to hike the mountain with us. Unfortunately, we awoke this morning to find the mountain covered in clouds and rain drizzling down all around us. We likely would have pulled the plug on today’s excursion, hoping for better weather in a day or so, but because we had made plans with our friend who could only do it today, that wasn’t an option.
We’ve spent the last couple of days trying to run down the details on where the hike begins and thought we had a fair idea. Our bus driver seemed to have info that differed a bit from ours though. When he let us off at Goldenrock Inn, we found the start of a trail and started walking. As it turns out, that particular trail led us not to the top of Nevis Peak but to a place referred to as The Source. Our friend Steve Bennett wrote a nice piece about this hike on his blog, Uncommon Caribbean. To learn more about this special spot, I suggest that you check out his post. In the meantime, here are some pics from today’s adventure. Hopefully, through them, you can enjoy the hike and unlike us, stay dry!
