Tree moss fires my imagination. On Halloween it looked spooky enough to move me to write a blog post about it. As we approach Christmas it stops looking spooky and begins to look festive. I was walking along the Mosquito Cover Trail and saw a line of green tinged white moss strung between boughs of green needles and thought pre-decorated Christmas tree. God’s garland. A little further on I saw clumps of flossy moss stuck to branches and and thought angel hair. I’m very suggestable. And while tinsel is supposed to suggest icicles, from now forward I will think tree moss. I couldn’t shake the image as I walked the Starrigavan Estuary trail or the Totem Trail in Sitka National Historical Park, and I couldn’t stop taking pictures. I collected 24 of them for this blog post.
