Moss Everywhere in the Redwoods


A few months back, I visited the Redwood forest in the Santa Cruz mountains in Northern California; I wrote about it here. With the Ragtag Daily Prompt for today – Moss, I just knew I needed a second look at those photos. There’s so much moss growing in the Redwood forest!

Over-abundance of moss.

There’s even moss on the forest floors around the banana slugs.

It’s always interesting to take a second look at my stockpile of photos from my archives with fresh eyes and a new perspective. I hope you enjoyed this trip through the moss-covered Redwood forest.
