    Question

    Today I visited a beautiful rainforest packed with all sorts of things! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It was sooooooo beautiful! It even had its own springs to dive into and ejoy the cool and relaxing, below cero temperatures lol After I tried diving into these springs I never went into another, the water was sooo cold it actually hurts! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Anyways I took some pictures to share them with all of you. I though you guys might like them.

    Nice Photos!

    The plant with bell-shaped flowers is called a brugmansia (used to be datura), or angel's trumpet. Most commonly it's grown in it's white or yellow-flowered form, which smells really good at night.

    What rainforest is this (what area/state)?

    thanks for sharing!

    I guess it's PR, Noah. That's where he lives.

    Interesting. I thought that flower looked like Datura when i saw it. Thing is, the Datura i've seen was growing in Arizona/Utah deserts... i can't believe the same thing is growing in a rainforest. Can you elaborate on the plant, Noah?

    Beautiful pics - thanks for sharing. I have a goal to see tropical rainforests and dry forests while they still exist. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    I doubt a Brugmansia was growing in a desert wildy, it must have been under care with watering. Brugmansia are very thirsty plants. Mine goes dry in about 2-4 days and I mean dry, not just dry on the top of the soil, the whole pot of it.

    Those pics are fantastic!
    I just wish there were rain forests up here in Canada! (Except then we'd probably have to call them snow forests [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] )

    Very nice! Is that the park "above" San Juan? Breathtaking!

    Spark, I think there is a temperate rainforrest somewhere on the west coast of Canada....I could be mistaken.
