Did you know that the fifth largest rain forest in the world is located in Alaska? The Tongass rain forest(17 million acres) is located in the vicinity of Ketchikan which gets average annual rain fall of 12.5 FEET! Here's the 2 story rain gauge that the downtown area has erected. We were there in Sept. and if you notice the salmon on the upper right edgeKetchikan of the gauge it's at 168" with 3.5 months still left in the year.

12.5 FEET?!?!?! Wonder what their flood insurance is like? Alaska is the last place I would think have a rain forest. Would love to visit some day.

My brother has spent some great time up there. I hear that it's just gorgeous in spite of the fact that it gets so much rain. Can I say....on "bucket list????"

Greg - Rain forests in Alaska is not something that I would have considered.  That's a lot of rain.

Greg,

That is a lot of rain, and it looks like they can prove it. :)
