Welcome to Rainforest Tours Guided Day Hiking

Operating Eco Wilderness Tours Since 2010

August is almost over! Commonly known as ‘Fogust’ by locals, I thought it would be fun to put together a mini album capturing a few of our foggy days. Every day this past August, without fail, it rolled on in, in one shape or another. Some days just creeping along the horizon, never quite reaching us. Other days coming right on in for a visit and settling in for the entire day, keeping visibility to a minimum and temps cool – to the chagrin of many 🙂
The most interesting thing I learned about fog this month? straight from Wikipedia – “A recently-discovered source of condensation nuclei for coastal fog is kelp. Researchers have found that under stress (intense sunlight, strong evaporation, etc.), kelp release particles of iodine which in turn become nuclei for condensation of water vapor.” – Kelp causes fog? Now that’s crazy!
