Olympic National Park is remarkable for its high longitude rainforests. What is possibly even more remarkable is how much you can see in less than a mile loop that is Mosses Trail.

The moss hang heavily and in abundance from every tree limb. Little gardens bloom on rotting tree stumps. Towering mushroom laden dead trees look like viewing platforms for insects. The perk of visiting Olympic over Costa Rica is the lack of poisonous snakes. It is a rainforest that would make Indiana Jones cry with joy.

Counter to the massive curtains of moss, small, delicate flora flourishes on a decaying tree stump.
