Dunn's River Falls ( Ocho Rios, Jamaica )

Before we went to play with the dolphins, we visited a Resort, called Dunn's River Falls which are famous in Jamaica. Ocho Rio means "Eight Rivers" however, in Jamaica there are only 4 rivers and one of those runs through Dunn's River Falls. The falls are very steep and very tall and the only way to climb them from bottom to top is to creat a human chain link and support each other as we climb. David and I used all kinds of muscles we never used before as we climbed. Suprisingly, we were not sore the next day. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to the top.

The falls grow every year as they generate themselves from travertine rock (result of precipitation of calcium carbonate from the river).

Enjoy (these were taken with a disposable camera, for obvious reasons)
