Blue Mountains Jamaica
Trekking to the top of the Blue Mountain begins well before dawn. Start with a fire roasted cup of Blue Mountain organic coffee, one of the most famous flavors of coffee. The trek is six miles long. Walk slow and pace yourself. The goal is to walk at night so you can reach the peak at sunrise.
At dawn you might see the Long Tailed Hummingbird that is native to this area. Dress warm, it is cold on the mountain.

On rainy days, there is a shelter where you can stay and play the local games. We played a game that was much like what we know as "Sorry".

A local farmer showed us his thyme farm and shared Jackfruit which is the size of a watermelon, but grows on trees. It was tasty and sweet, but also sticky.

We taught Alex from Jah B's Guesthouse how to play hacky sac. When asked what his kitten's name was, Alex looked surprised. Naming a kitten is not something he was familiar with. Alex recovered and said, "You can name the kitten".
