Sunset in the Sierra Palm forest - Tradewinds trail
Several hours into Tradewinds, before Maria, we caught on camera this sunset.
It was a very fast event - it lasted less than 5 minutes, and I ran to capture it.
The rays of light are made visible by the fog and humidity. We measured here 99%
humidity at all times and for a week. The Sierra Palm forest was thick then before Maria.
El Toro and Tradewinds Trail are a 13 mile back trail, maybe the longest forested trail in PR.
One side starts on PR 191 - Tradewinds trail (closed), the El Toro Trail entrance is near the
end of the park, the trail head is on Road 186 at KM 10.8 and its a hard and very muddy trail.
It includes El Toro Wilderness - a Federally protected region, were all development is prohibited.
Tradewinds trails meets El Toro trail at the highest peak of EYNF - El Toro peak - at 3,533 feet
of altitude, an awesome view. It has less fog than other peaks. Only the El Toro section is open,
Tradewinds has been closed due to a landslides for a long time, even before Maria...
It features beautiful wild flowers and all layers and types of forest - with immense variety.
The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking and nature trips.
Trade - winds feed EYNF with humidity and come from Africa.
Note: This photo was taken before Hurricane Maria.
El Yunque, officially named 'El Yunque National Forest'
(EYNF) is located in northeastern Puerto Rico.
It is the only tropical rainforest in the US National
Park System (NPS) and is managed by the US Forest Service.
It covers a surface of 28,430 acres (115 km2).
It is the largest forest in Puerto Rico.
EYNF was stablished in 1903 by the beginning USFS,
but initially it was set aside in 1876 by King Alfonso XII
of Spain and represents one of the oldest reserves in the
Western Hemisphere. Before that it was revered by the
Taino Indians as a Holy land as 'Yuke'or white land.
We 1st used Canon cameras, then Nikon 24MP cameras
at maximum resolution. We covered all roads and trails
of the forest and some deep regions in over 40 days of
explorations of the forest and collected over 10K images.
In 2019 we started using the Nikon D850 with 45MP.
Many of our canvas prints have dates, this is because their
purpose was to be a scientific record of the EYNF at that
place and time. Now that Hurricane Maria has decimated
the forest, it remains a record of how EYNF was after
the natural growth with no major hurricanes in 100 years.
