The partial skull of a Green Vervet Monkey in Stone Fort Canyon.
Entering Stone Fort Canyon on the way to the petroglyphs site.
Petroglyphs of presumably human faces in the western part of the canyon.
One of the petroglyps that is more hidden than the others, requiring some vigilance and a short climb up some slippery mud (hang on to the vines).
I don't know why but this petroglyph kinda reminds me of the "man on mars" feature.
Faces seem to be the theme in the petroglyphs found in Stone Fort Canyon.
Approaching a bend in a narrow section of Stone Fort Canyon.
Finally getting some sunlight peaking into Stone Fort Canyon.
An area of Stone Fort Canyon that is really just a tunnel of vines.
I couldn't quite make out what this petroglyph was supposed to be. An insect maybe?
This section of the canyon contains probably the highest concentration of petroglyphs.
Spiders (or whatever is spinning those webs) avoided covering these carvings at the beginning of the canyon.
This 18th-century lime kiln was used to make cement out of limestone.
The Orillon Bastion under the protective guns of the Prince of Wales Bastion. St Eustatius is the island on the left.
Archaeologists have noted that the cemetery is "thick with bones." Countless soldiers were buried here over the years. Only a few headstones remain, and of those, only a few from the late 18th century are still readable.
The Orillon Bastion as seen from the Prince of Wales Bastion. A crude hospital was located in the area left of the Orillon Bastion, where the trees stand today.
The guns of the Prince of Wales Bastion.
Looking towards the Infantry Officers Quarters and the Artillery Officers Quarters (background) from the Prince of Wales Bastion.
The remains of Fort Charles are abandoned and covered in brush, barely visible in the center of the photo.
The boatyard I'm at has 24-hour security, and for a little added comfort, cannons on the hill above.
The kitchen of the Artillery Officers Quarters.
This semi-circle was a water catchment, capable of holding over 100,000 gallons of water. A smaller holding tank can be seen to the left, just below it. It was paved when it was in use.
The arches of the Infantry Officers Quarters. The is the first floor; the second floor was destroyed in a hurricane. Fort George can be seen on the hill above.
The lower hallway of the Infantry Officer's Quarters at Brimstone Hill.
