About our forest wall canvas prints:

History:
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 Forest System (NPS) and is managed
by the US Forest Service (USFS). It covers a surface of 28,430 acres (115 km2). It is the largest
forest in Puerto Rico. It 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, and its name 'Yuke' means white land.

Weather:
Temperature is fairly constant in the forest:  80°F(26°C) high and 68°F (20°C) Low, there is no winter in PR.
The trade winds come from Africa’s deserts, cross over 2,000 miles over the Atlantic Ocean and gather humidity,
then the very first land they find is Puerto Rico and then El Yunque - only a few miles from the coast.
The moist trade winds rise to over 2,000 feet and condense into rain and fog, which is also collected by
the heavy moss in the trees and plants, this is called 'horizontal rain' and provides about 20% of the water
in the many river streams. All this region of PR, over 1M people, feed on the pure water from El Yunque.

Rainfall:
Rainfall is intense at times, and frequent, from 180 inches in the lower forest to over 200 inches
in the higher elevations. Humidity can be 99% in those regions and are full of moss and bromeliads.
But keep in mind that EYNF canopy was severely damaged by the recent Hurricane Maria in Sept 20, 2017, which
ravaged the entire Island with winds of 140MPH for 12 hours. EYNF is still in recovery and was closed
for about a year. Many trails remain closed and are poorly maintained due to constant storms or landslides.

Canvas Prints:
We used 1st Canon cameras, then used Nikon 24MP cameras at maximum resolution and file size. We covered
all trails of the forest and some deep regions in over 40 days of explorations of the forest.
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 almost 100 years.

We collected over 10,000 images of the forest before Hurricane Maria, and now we explore Rio Sabana.
We have posted these precious images to share with all, mostly in wall canvas prints, mini canvas prints,
3-set canvas prints, metallic (polished aluminum) or acrylic prints with incredible quality of image.

Peaks:
The four main peaks are El Yunque peak, El Toro peak, El Cacique peak and The East Peak, all around 3,000 feet.
El Yunque has a 1-hr road and trails to it's peak, El Toro has an open muddy 3-hr trail, East Peak has a 2-hr road to it.

El Yunque is composed of four different forest vegetation areas:
Tabonuco Forest - the lower forest with taller trees, this region was reforested for over 50 years as needed.
Palo Colorado Forest - middle at about 2,500 feet approx., we find the Palo Colorado and Yagrumo trees.
Sierra Palm Forest - the upper forest near the peaks, with thousands of Sierra Palms covering the steep ground.
Dwarf Forest - the forest close to the top of the peaks at 3,000 feet of elevation, full of moss and small bromeliads.
We call the 'cloud forest' an intermediate zone from 2,500 feet upwards - were most Sierra Palms are located.
EYNF is home to over 200 species of trees and plants, 23 unique types, and of course the coqui frog.

Access:
From San Juan El Yunque is accessible via an express (prepaid toll) Route 66 and then PR-3
until the small town of Palmer, were the main road PR-191 starts and crosses El Yunque. The road has a gate that
opens daily from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM, and the entrance is free. Major attractions are in Km 8 La Coca Falls
and at 8.8 km the Yokahu Tower, both with easy access and plenty of parking. Parking is limited due to the
heavy visitors and car load - about 1 to 2 million visitors per year, so it is better to come early.
The main attraction is the roaring La Mina falls, from the Large trees trail or the more scenic La Mina trail.
Information on the forest is available at the entrance in El Portal Rain Forest Center, for a small fee.

PR-191 Closed section:
At the end of the road there is a loop (PR-9938) that goes by the Mt. Britton trail, one of the best attractions,
and the goes by a gate that closes the road and returns back. This section is the upper forest and
is close to the cloud forest (over 2,500 feet altitude). The main road PR-191 was closed at this gate
since there was a huge landslide in the 1970's and the USFS decided to split the road at this point.
This we called the closed PR 191 and is a walk in the forest for about 2.5 hours.
The other open side of the PR-191 is accessible via Naguabo and PR-52, and is called Rio Sabana Park.
