Wonders of the Temperate Jungle

The temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest are a wonder comparable to any tropical jungle. Giant trees soar skyward, crystal streams tumble beneath the ferns, and moss covers everything making the forest a vertical maze of greenery even the depths of winter when the leaves have fallen. Now it is spring, and the dormant foliage is waking back up. Soon the devils club and stinging nettle will be taller than my head, making expeditions into the forest depths even more of a challenge.
