Exotic Locales: Pigeon Island, St.Lucia

The fort at Pigeon Island

Let me first start by saying that I'm a pure sucker for a really good view. In my quest for the ultimate high that comes along with experiencing the most breathtaking views, I've learned that a bit of hiking is often (if not always) involved. I'm no athlete (by far) though I do consider myself to be in decent shape. That being said, my hike to the lookout point in the fort on Pigeon Island was not challenging at all. Along the way, I saw people of all ages making the trek to the top.

Pigeon Island is a national landmark on the sweet island of St. Lucia that offers unspoiled views at the lookout points (there are two I believe). The journey to the top is made up of slightly steep hills and equally steep steps (at some points). However, your hard work is handsomely rewarded once you reach the top...
