A Mossy Wood
I see this stretch of moss and evergreens every time I'm driving east on I-84 to Hood River, and always want to stop for a photo. Not long ago I noticed that the historic US Highway 30 Trail extends along the edge of this forest, so this week I made time to pull off and walk the stretch of trail just west of Starvation Creek. These trees extend back maybe 100 ft. until they reach a cliff wall, thus the dark background, and perfect mossy growing conditions. I have to say, it's a nice little trail, especially for people looking to avoid the steeper elevations. Only downside is that you walk awfully close to I-84 so lots of highway noise.
