Clump of moss
Moss is so abundant in the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park that clumps of it sometimes fall from tree branches.
The moss dripping down from trees makes some forest settings seem fantastical, like something from a Tolkien story.
The Oregon and Washington coasts are pockmarked with miles of clear-cut forest. Clear-cutting leaves the land looking like it has been hit by a hurricane.
