A Mossy Monday

Here's a few more pictures from my hike along the Haw River on Sunday.

Some sphagnum moss that I saw on a branch. There's just something about an organism that just lives on air that fascinates me. (yes, I know that it doesn't really just live on air but indulge me here)






This picture is just a quarter mile in from the road. At this point the Haw River is split in two by a large island, seen in the background. I liked the way that the dead tree seemed to be stretching out to touch the island...




Here's some phlox looking all spring-like and pretty. We came across it in a meadow where the trees were cut down to accommodate some underground gas lines.

All of the hike pics are really nice...makes me want spring more than ever. Like the leather too; very rich looking.
I am so jealous. I love hiking and it hasn't been nice enough here to go hiking. I hope it is soon because I really could use the nature time.

I'm so psyched to go hiking next week. My $31 boots arrived and I can't wait to break them in--I haven't been hiking since I was a kid, and I have a horrible sense of direction, so they'll probably find me dead in a ditch somewhere, but damn, I'm excited.
