We’re off to our 3 stop on our world trip this year. We started off in September in the Amazon Rainforest and then we spent most of October in the Galapagos Islands. Now we are packing up the raincoats, warm boots and gloves and heading up the Pacific Northwest to discover the wonders of the temperate rainforest! That’s right, most people know all about the tropical rainforests and their amazing animals, but there are temperate rainforests too.
