    El Yunque National Forest, formerly known as the Luquillo National Forest, and the Caribbean National Forest, is a forest located in northeastern Puerto Rico. It is the only tropical rain forest in the United States. The forest is commonly known as El Yunque, which may be attributed to either a Spanish approximation of the aboriginal Taino word yu-ke which means "white lands", or the word anvil, which means yunque in Spanish. The second-tallest mountain within El Yunque is also named El Yunque. El Yunque National Rainforest is located on the slopes of the Sierra de Luquillo Mountains and it encompasses 28,000 acres (43.753 mi² or 113.32 km²) of land, making it the largest block of public land in Puerto Rico.

    El bosque nacional El Yunque o simplemente El Yunque (antes llamado bosque nacional del Caribe) es un bosque nacional localizado en Puerto Rico y es el único bosque lluvioso tropical en el Sistema de Bosques Nacional en los Estados Unidos. Lleva su nombre en honor al benévolo dios indígena Yuquiyú y es uno de los lugares conocidos más lluviosos del mundo. Fuente: Wikipedia

      There is a lot to love in this photo! I like the miniature waterfall to the bottom left, the huge leaf stuck to the wet rock, and those incredibly vibrant reds and yellows on the rocks under the main cascade. So nice!
