Morne Diablotins stands out even among the towering mountains that impressively fill the landscape on the island of Dominica.
With an elevation of 4,747 feet, Morne Diablotins is the highest point on the island — which was named by Christopher Columbus after the day of the week he first saw it ("Dominica" is Latin for Sunday) — and is also the second tallest mountain in the Lesser Antilles.
The mountain shares its name with the local word for black-capped petrel, a small seabird native to the region.
Although Morne Diablotins — which is located in the northern portion of the island — is volcanic, it doesn't seem like the island's inhabitants have much to worry about. The last eruption is believed to have taken place more than 30,000 years ago.
