    ~ The unique landscape of the gorgeous Caribbean Islands offers exceptional opportunities for nature hikes and discovering some of the most enchanting and lush rural scenery that is practically hidden in plain sight. With minimal planning, you can find some wonderful hiking trails at the base of long-dormant volcanoes, in a wondrous rainforest and even in national parks. There are nature hikes for the serious outdoorsman as well as the leisurely day-trippers alike. And you can spend a day, morning, or afternoon hiking outdoors, inhaling fragrant tropical flora, listening for the call of exotic birds, and beholding breathtaking vistas from soaring overlooks.

    And what better place for commuting with nature than the spectacular, beautiful Caribbean Islands!





    For the Bird Watching Hike Challenge, teams will spend the day exploring a Caribbean Island to spot local birds, butterflies, flowers and other flora and fauna that are indigenous to their chosen island. For this challenge, teams will …

    1) Teams will first select a Caribbean Island from the list above. Each island can be selected by only one team, so make your selection early to ensure you get your choice.

    2) Plan a day hike on your chosen island. It can be an established trail recommended by a travel concierge, or you are free to venture off on your own to explore your island with trailblazing gusto.

    3) Plan to take at least one team backpack, to include all the provisions you’ll need for the day while you’re out commuting with nature. When stocking your backpack(s), be sure to consider how long you’ll be away from conveniences, weather conditions, as well as what types of terrain and other elements you’ll encounter, etc.

    4) Write a story about your team’s adventurous hike on your chosen island. In your story, be sure to include …
    … what items you included in your team backpack(s),
    … what local bird(s) and/or butterflies your team saw,
    … the tropical flowers you spotted during your hike,
    … and anything else your team encountered during your day hike.

    5) Post your story in this Challenge thread.
