Hiking to the Testigos Grande Light
Monday November 30th ( mostly overcast with periods of heavy rain) We decided with the cooler weather this would be a great day to hike up to the light. The Mountain it is on top of is 807ft high. We set out at 9:30am. The vegetation in this part of the world is dramatically different from Grenada. Grenada is lush with topical jungle. Here it is arid with short scrubby trees and cacti. Along the way we saw iguanas and small lizards. The hike took about 2 hours round trip and if it had been a sunny day I don’t think we would have made it. The last 25 feet were terrifying for those of us afraid of heights ( Janine and Kevin). I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
