On our first visit, we met a local named Temo who was an excellent woodcarver. In addition, he did jeep tours over the mountains from Bay of Virgins to Omoa. We ultimately ended up doing this trip one and one half times. On the first, the rain set in and the road (dirt) as we headed over the top became increasingly dangerous. While Temo was unconcerned, we weren’t and made the decision to head back. So here are a few shots of our fist effort.
The first is the road as we came up and out of the Bay of Virgins.
The second is looking back down on the bay and Iron Lady – and it is way steeper then it looks.
The road winds yet higher.
Our trusty 4 wheel ride and the end of the paved road.
The going gets rougher.
And a nice waterfall but time to head back to the barn.
Our guests actually walked back down to the paved road.
More next time and pictures of the full trip when we competed it during our next visit to Fatu Hiva.
