Hiking La Soufrier in St. Vincent with the Missionaries

A little gecko decided to join us on our trip to La Soufrier.  
 The four hour hike begins here.

 Near the top of the mountain we stop for a group picture.   The mountain was shrouded in mist.  I was actually cold for the first time in 9 months.
 Sister Tongi prepares all the cameras for a group shot.  
 Left to right: Elder Cox (Alaska), Elder Hodgekinson (Layton), Sister Aitiria (Kiribati), Elder Merrell (Vernal), Elder Hendry (Canada), Sister Tongi (Honolulu), Elder Morrison (Jamaican), Elder Lawenitotoka (Fiji), Elder Dancan (Kenya), Elder Ropati (Samoa), and Elder Cox (St. George).  Three of the elders didn't come because they had already done the hike or were injured or sick.  What great missionaries they all are!!!!
 Can you see something on the leaf?

 I thought hiking up the mountain was bad, it was worse coming back down.  My legs were shot.  
Don't we look lovely?  Our hair and clothes were soaked with sweat.  It ended up being a 5 hour hike.
