Priest’s Pools is one of my favorite sights in southern Guam. The Pigua River cascades along terraces of basalt lava as it heads toward the ocean. The water is cool and somewhat clear. Back when the Spanish first arrived on the island in the 1500s, the priests would bathe in the cool fresh water.  The river meanders in the typical volcanic hills and tall sword grass found throughout the south.

Priest’s Pools is where I shot an Ophelia-inspired set requiring me to descend the pools in a 1970’s gown. Remember this?
