Boggy Peak to be Mount Obama

The tallest point on the Island nation of Antigua will soon have a new name: Mount Obama. For years, Boggy Peak (1,300 feet/396 meters) has attracted hikers and been and integral part of the landscape.  Boggy Peak’s new name will become official on August 4, President Obama’s birthday. Antigua is a tiny Caribbean nation, the population of which is over 90% black. Must say, “Mount Obama” sounds much more stately than “Boggy Peak.”
