Jamaica - Always Something More To Explore

Jamaican Cave with carvings
Contest Entry #12 - Jamaica - Always Something More To Explore
I come to Jamaica very often, each time hoping to experience something different and see something new.
This last time I was able to venture out a lil bit in Ochi and go thru Fern Gully.
Fern Gully is a winding scenic stretch of road that runs just south of Ocho Rios and lead to a town called Colgate.
The area gets its name from the wide variety of ferns which grow on each side of the road and completely block the sunlight, making it very cool and serene.
Along the way there are local artist selling their works, mostly wood carvings and souvenir items.
On my way to Fern Gully I came across this small cave with all of these beautiful carvings.
The creator of this beautiful artwork happened to be there and allowed me to snap this picture.
He hand carved all of these faces into the stone walls of this small enclave.
The detail of the carvings brings the stone to life and you feel as if you are looking at hundreds of souls trapped in stone; definitely not something you see every day and a true testament to how talented and gifted Jamaican people are.
I never expected to come across this on my drive but that is just how Jamaica is - always something more to see and to explore.
