Gran Piton, Soufriere, St. Lucia. September 13, 2001.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

The picture above was taken in 2001 on the island of St. Lucia.  Betsy and I were on our honeymoon cruise and had gone ashore to tour a plantation near the town of Soufriere.  The mountain is Gran Piton, one of two mountains that mark the entrance to the harbor.  You can see a stretch of a tropical beach in the lower right of the picture.
