It’s a hot summer day here at home and this is all I can think of as I wilt like a dead plant in these stifling conditions. A few weeks ago in Olympic National Park’s Hoh Rain Forest, I was gazing down into the crystal clear waters of a spring-fed stream as water drips from curtains of moss. What a refreshing sight! The vivid green of the weeds in the water contrasts nicely with the blue-gray clay and silt on the stream bottom. The last photo shows the moss-draped temperate rain forest that the stream passes through.
