The Hall of Mosses in Olympic National Park's Hoh Rain Forest in Washington is a fascinating, etheral scenery that even a tripping Tolkien couldn't have invented.
Diamond drips of moisture cling to the tips of leaves on trees of epic heights, and a soft drizzle eases from a thick quilt of clouds overhead. Old-man's beard drips from branches above like corduroy fringe, while licorice ferns and lettuce lichens overwhelm the massive fallen trunks of maple and Sitka spruce. Cloaked and draped in green, and glazed with moisture, every surface is soft and wet and alive with something - or decaying to make way for the next generation of life in the Hoh.
