Soltoun Falls, Dominica

The last time I went to Soltoun Falls there was a faint track through the forest and then a steep climb down into the river valley. Now there’s a car park, concrete roads, wooden platforms and signs. I suppose it’s called progress. Just after I took this photo, a bunch of schoolkids turned up. It was great to see young Dominicans enjoying one of the many natural treasures of their island.
