O ' Lord my God when I in awesome Wonder
Its summit is home to the Trinidad endemic El Tucuche Golden Tree Frog (Phyllodytes auratus), found only on El Tucuche and on Trinidad's highest peak El Cerro del Aripo. The lush evergreen forest, found in the mountain of El Tucuche provides home for other wild tropical fauna and flora. At the foot of the mountain lies the village of Lluengo, home to some 2,000 residents.
You know we all have passions or gravitate to something in this world that seems to fascinate us. In my case I ADORE nature and sometimes when I see a scenery it doesn't matter where I am.
I just feel the need to Capture it, I remember travelling to work and there I would be on evenings, looking at the skies while the sun is setting the sites were so beautiful. I would whip out my phone and snap once I was seated near a window. Yeah I got those stares like is she crazy?" No i am not!
It looks so GOOD!
I work in the Eastern part of my country which is an island it's surrounded by water and attractive mountains that makes the protection walls around us from the ocean. On my way to and from work i see these gorgeous stunning greeneries and it seems as though, everyday God gives it some touching up , because to me it just looks more and more amazing.
Do you find yourself loving nature?
Do you love seeing the mountains to ?
My Urge for Adventure
I woke up Saturday morning with this urge to go to the mountains to snap photos of its luscious greeneries. I got out my camera and put it to charge , i also charged my three cell phones just in-case something decided to go wrong. I won't be disappointed I had back up. I had violin class that evening but my adventure was too pressing , so i cancelled class. Immediately after i text my friend to ask if she'd like to go for a drive. I did not tell her my plans least she would not be impressed not everyone likes nature, and not everyone is crazy as me.
I wish i had all day to hit several mountain ranges ,but unfortunately i had to go to the city to pick up my nephew, to drop him off for guitar classes. Golly! So i drove around until his class was finished and then we headed to the gas station and off we drove to Maracas St. Joseph.
Maracas St. Joseph is a really beautiful place i have a lot of family living on that side and i love visiting there. The place is so cold and shady with trees and rivers, its also filled with lovely houses , the ones on the hills just stands out. While driving i kept seeing sceneries i wanted to snap but at times i just couldn't stop abruptly on the roads.
Northern Range Trinidad
Mountains Carved by God's own Hands
I mean come on how can people say there is no God? huh!! Can you like see how breathtaking His creation is ? These mountains were carved out by His own hands, all different shades of green that gives it a pretty artistic look .
The trees on the mountains looks as though someone has passed a lawn mower on it. So low and pretty, but when you go closer you see these big trees and tall grasses. Seems like God is into 3D also ,LOL .Everyday to and from work i literally feel like jumping out my car and running straight to the hills, my O' my i am so flabbergasted by its exotic magnificent good looks. The view is just awesome from the highway.
I am really blessed to be living on such a lovely island, some people have never seen the mountains or aren't as fortunate as I am to rest their eyes upon them every day.
No Artist Can draw like God
I personally think all the artist in world can never come anywhere near to God's designing of the earth , He is like so so GRAND and good at His creations. It oftentimes leaves me jaw dropping it makes me imagine if the earth has so many amazing natural beauties what would it be like in the here after?
Mount Saint Benedict Hills

Mountain St. Benedict Hill is where you can get a really good view of the country on a whole. you see like almost right around. Its lovely for relaxing and taking gorgeous photos of the landscape that lies below.
A Poem When I in Awesome Wonder
O' Lord my God when i in awesome wonder
I see the lovely stars you have set in array.
The mountains so tall they look beautiful
everyday. The skies are here to stay.
The rivers runs endlessly from
sea to sea. The birds chirp with
sweet sweet melodies, trees arched in lovely
shapes. Amazing sunsets and the moon glows
for light at night . Then sings my
soul my Saviour God to thee.........
