The field trip participants looking for coral and foram fossils
Mighty Montserrat - can you spot the small hole on the left (<5m p="" wide="">5m>
Our geology guides - Mark and Alberto and their handy white board
We also had a traditional late, long, spanish lunch - so I had to keep snacking on the wild blackberries and figs that I found at some of the sites to keep me going until 2pm...
In the afternoon we walked a little way up Montserrat and went into the caves - formed because the rock is cemented by calcite.. but the clay in the rock makes all the speleothems (stalagmites and stalagtites) red, rather than their normal white.
Hopefully I will get back here some day and climb and explore some more... it is a spectacular place.
