Today’s adventure took us deep into the St. Lucian rainforest, where we caught a ride up the Rainforest Aerial Tram.
“Where are the skis?” asked my five-year-old son, Iden, who talks about the Vail trip as if it happened yesterday.
Alas, no skis. And no snow.
But it was an unbelievably beautiful ride into the clouds, through dense forests of fern, hardwood trees and ficus. Hummingbirds buzzed our gondola as we neared the top of the mountain, and then we turned and saw the most awe-inspiring view of the island; the Caribbean on one side, the Atlantic on the other.
