[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bryophyta or moss grows in damp, shady places like on rocks, or treetrunks, or in moist soil. The moss growing on the rocks alongside this trail is fed by moisture from the waterfall(Nevada Fall) and the river that flows next to the trail. They call this trail "The Mist Trail".
Botanically, mosses are bryophytes, or non-vascular plants. They grow together in clumps.
Among the three phyla of bryophytes,the greatest species diversity is found among mosses. According to Southern Illinois Universitywebsite,(http://bryophytes.plant.siu.edu/bryojustified.html)this phyla contains over 15,000 varieties.
I enjoyed hiking the trail and seeing the diversity of plant life that exists in this park.
Have a really great day and enjoy the photo.

Hello Karen,
This image reminds me alot of the Hocking Hills area in the southwestern part of Ohio. It has many of the same types of outcroppings covered with beautiful green mosses such as this.
A very good shot and composed in an attractive vertical frame work. Looks like you had a bright sunny day for your trek along this particular trail.

Wonderful shot Karen. I love the vibrance of the green moss. It's framed well, and I like the fact that you wern't afraid to cut off the path in half to get the shot. Well done! TFS Trevor

Hello Karen,
Nice to have somebody who shows landscape-pictures, there are not so many here.
Lovely view on this path bordered with these mossy stones. A very nice point of view and vertical framing chosen. Thanks too for your kind words on my last picture. I just wanted to add that Lilium martagon in the wild is quite tiny and never has the size of tiger-lilies. But the shape indeed recalls them.
Kind regards

Hi Karen,
beautiful place. Amazing colours and composition. I would like to trail there :)
Thanks for sharing,

hallo karen

Ciao Karen, lovely composition, great perspective, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

It is reminding me some trekking routes in India.
Nice capture of moss.

Hi Karen
Very nice "moss" landscape, good composition.
