#445 Dominica, the Nature (and wet) Island

About 370 inches of rain fall in Dominica's central highlands every year.

Mary, a former math major, tells me that amounts to a little over one inch of rain every single day.  Thank you Mary.

So rain-wise, our visit to Dominica's Morne Trois Pitons National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was extremely average.

We walked through the rain forest to the Emerald Pool in the rain.

We walked to Trafalgar Falls in the rain.

Plants grow a lot when it rains.

Waterfalls multiply when it rains.

Yours in appreciating lots of rain,


  1. Have you heard The Who's song, "Love, Reign o'er Me"? It's electric.

  2. We were there, standing right where you did last spring on a brown wooden deck in front of Trafalgar Falls. Rain was also falling on us, and the waterfalls weren't quite so powerful. You guys look good--it was the right thing to do, packing that rain gear. We had wet beach towels on our heads--not quite as smart. :)
