It's a tough hike or a straining, bumpy ride in a four-wheel-drive up Garibaldi Hill, but your reward is a prime perch for viewing the devastation done to the Iles Bay area by the Soufriere Hills volcano. Part of Isles Bay -- known as the Beverly Hills of Montserrat -- is still inhabited, but residents must drive over the mudflows in the Belham Valley to get to and from their homes, a journey that can quickly become dangerous when heavy rains bring more mud down from the mountains.
