A cloud forest in...

Oman is all desert, right?  Wrong!  This is cloud forest in the Salalah mountains in Oman, which is right on the edge of the monsoon region, so gets a bit of rain.  Actually, it only gets 15 inches of actual precipitation, but if you factor in the condensation from fog, you can triple that.  Thanks to Razib Khan with his blog at Discover magazine for the headsup.
