Scenery: Tiny Forest (Panthertown Valley, Western NC)

These little moss, lichen fungus and plant communities were found on a hike on Little Green Mountain in Panthertown Valley in Western NC.

These varieties are not common in this region except in special places where conditions of temperature, moisture, soil are just right. Usually in this area that means high altitude. It is fun to imagine oneself as a tiny explorer in a newly found continent of strange trees and plant.
