There seems to be an inconsistency here.
This existence of a Washington rainforest would slightly dampen, no pun intended, the uniqueness of the PR rainforest. As such, I felt it was my duty to email the NPS to clarify and ask them if the Puerto Ricans are a bunch of liars or not. For the sake of entertainment I embellished some of the comments our Puerto Rican tourguides made to help add fuel to the fire... namely, I added that they directly dissed this alleged Washinton rainforest. Also there is nothing funnier that liberally throwing around the word "liar" to strangers. My email is as follows:
Dear NPS,The snapshot of the email is below to assure you of the fact that I'm not making this all up. This issue is of dire importance and if Yogi Bear, Park Ranger Smith or any other reputed forest ranger needs to get involved, so be it. I shall await to see their response.
I recently visited Puerto Rico's rainforests and they said that they are the only natural rainforest in all of America in National Park System. We specifically asked them about the "rainforests" in Washington State, which your website also labels as also being a rainforest. The park ranger in Puerto Rico said those are not "real" rainforest and that this fact is "well documented." I am confused, are the Puerto Ricans liars or is your website wrong?Thank you in advance,
Just to ensure that we get some sort of response, I've also posted this question up as a comment on the US Postal Service blog which so kindly took over my blog several moons back. ("the US Postal Service hijacked my blog," 4/21/06).
