Blue Mountain


Hiking in the Blue Mountains 
 Friday Night
This weekend I became a Jamaican. What do I mean you may ask? By this I mean, I finally realized why so many tourists come to Jamaica and not another Caribbean island. This weekend my coworkers and I did something that I believe that every  Jamaican should do, at least once in their lives. This weekend, we climbed the blue mountains. Yes it was hell, yes, it took like 6 hours but in the end it was all worth it.
The trip started with a very winding road through Gordon Town, where we were scared at very turn, I have never seen such deep courners and hedges before in my life. I was very elated when we got to Mavis Bank, the start of the hike,at about 1am Saturday morning.
Mavis Bank, where the bus left us was the start of the journey, much to my surprise my journey was not even close to over, in fact it had just began. We were en route to Portland Gap which was like 3 hrs walk from Mavis Bank. 
The good news was that we got a ride from some farmers going up the hill. This was a very bumpy ride which lasted like 1 hr and 30 minutes, honestly, I wished I had walked since I was now seeing all the edges and hillsides in the very brightly lit van light.
The van stopped at a coffee estate and we had to start walking up the hill at 2:30 in the morning , it was cold and very dark, however we were armed with our flashlights and jackets so nothing could stand in our way. The walk from the estate to Jacob's Ladder took approximately 1 hr and the remaining walk up to Portland Gap took another 2 in all we got there at 5 am, tired and stressed out we went straight to bed.

Saturday Morning
 Saturday Morning was very cold,I was totally freezing. This changed however when the sun came out around 10 am.

Sports and games are the most important part of the life for the healthy wealthy life but people are unaware of it. Such posts and photos help us a lot in promoting spots and to convince others for the game. I really appreciate this little talented brave girl.
