Destroyed Tropical Rainforest - - (Rainforest destruction, tropical)

We drove to the end of a road being cut from the mountains in Northern Ecuador into the Choco rainforest toward the Pacific coast. This is a large area of virgin forest completely without roads just south of the Colombian border. The Choco is also one of the wettest forests on earth. Just north of this spot in Colombia over 700 inches of rain has been measured in one year. We were here at the height of the dry season and it still averaged an inch of rain each day. We camped at the end of the road on the way in. The next morning we packed all of our gear onto horses and went a day's walk into the forest. After 21 days, we packed up and came back out. The forests had melted away from the road. Everyone entering the forest carried either a shotgun, a machete or a chainsaw, sometimes two. The Amazon rain forest is the largest tropical forest in the world. Each year a portion of the forest equal in size to Rhode Island is lost to logging, fires and agricultural conversion.
