I couldn't have created a better rainbow in photoshop even if I tried. Rainbows were quite common in the Windward Islands as brief showers gave way to gorgeous sun.


St. Vincent


Soufriere Volcano, St. Vincent


Soufriere Volcano, St. Vincent
The highlight of the trip was a hike up the volcano on St. Vincent. The vegetation looks fairly lush here, especially considering that the entire area was totally devegetated by the volcano's most recent eruption in 1979. My brother (shown in the picture), Brad, enjoys the hike.

The long hike to the top was well worth it! Unfortunately, the wind at the top was so strong that we were worried about being blown over the edge. The drop was about 1500 feet, so we stayed well clear of the edge when we took this picture!
