Ancient Flood Marking on the Bog Walk Gorge

Contest Entry #8- The Hillsides Of The Bog Walk Gorge



On the hillsides of the Bog Walk Gorge in St. Catherine, one may see some ancient tide marks. One can also note where floods of decades or perhaps centuries ago rushed through this area, devastating the surrounding Jamaican countryside.

Decades ago, in the early 1960s, two of my four brothers were undergraduates at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies. At the time, I was living in Trinidad. When we met together one Christmas in our native Barbados, my two siblings spoke in glowing terms of having taken this spectacular route by bus.

Since they were students, they could not afford to own a motor car.

Many years later, I made my first visit to Jamaica. One of my Jamaican colleagues was gracious enough to drive me through the very route of which my brothers had spoken so highly.

I was not disappointed. I was really enthralled on the trip. Now some thirty years later, that first memory of those ancient flood markings still remain as vivid in my mind as when I first saw them.
