CLOUD FOREST

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageA CLOUD FOREST IS WHERE THE CLOUDS DROP BELOW THE TOPS OF THE DENSE FOREST VEGETATION CINGING TO THE ANDES MOUNTAINS. WE STOPPED AT THE RIM OF AN EXTINCT VOLCANO. THE RICH SOIL AT THE CENTER OF THE VOLCANO IS NOW BEING CULTIVATED FOR FARMING. 

THE CLIMATE IS MODERATE TEMPS WITH RAIN ALMOST DAILY. THE FOREST IS ALIVE WITH HUMMING BIRDS AND BUTTERFLIES. MOUNTAIN STREAMS FED FROM MELTING GACIERS WERE BEING USED FOR TUBING. WITH THE WATER TEMPERATURE AT 50 IT WAS WAY TOO COLD!
