It RAINS in the tropical rain forest

The temperature dropped at least ten degrees from the sunny ocean front as we drove up into the tropical rainforest. Philodendron crawl up smooth tree trunks, ferns smother the steepest slopes, and trees produce fruit all year round.

We got to experience the real deal, the RAIN in rainforest. I thought tropical rainforests were hot and muggy, but this one was cool….and muggy. Milo, as usual, was a good sport.

We drove back down to the coast to warm up and dry out, and Milo got another chance to play in the waves. I don’t imagine the water will be as warm in Christchurch.
