BORNEO, THE OLD JUNGLE

This probably should have been my first post on Borneo. On our trip there we stayed at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge – deep in the primary rainforest – which is a rainforest that has not been logged.

It was a remarkable and remote place, with trees that are only rivaled in size by the redwoods of California.

It had a very Jurassic feel to it, with the swirling mists, wild animal calls and abundance of wildlife. Definitely not the kind of place that you want to get lost in, vast and unyielding to the untrained Canadian.

A few shots.

Magnificent. One hopes that tourism can sustain and protect it.
