I won’t really be able to tell you exactly what makes a rainforest be a rainforest, but it is, no doubt about it, because of its rich and humid climate, that creates a specific vegetation.
And this is what I’ve discovered there : a fairyland, and enchanted forest that could also easily be a land of witchcraft and fantastic moovies
You could easily imagine trees transforming into walking creatures, or a place where fairies, gnomes and little bunnies could live happily ever after (or not) 🙂
This rainforest is made of several levels of vegetation, living all together…. everything is almost covered with plants, and dead branches and troncs are rotting and helping other plants to live, fed by tthem, or becoming a new ground to grow on 🙂
A vegetal world with a bit of their roots into the water for part of it…
Where the forest seems to dance when seeing you 🙂
And then, we look up in the sky and discover an entire different world living up there, very very high, as rich, green and diversified 🙂
That was an enchanting walk, with lots of various hikes to try too.
If you ever get in this area, I highly recommend that you check Hoh rainforest
I LOVED IT !
