You find some amazing things in a Pacific coast rain forest! Because of the huge rainfall and mild climate, everything grows very fast, especially moss. Every branch, or old tree-trunk or stump,very soon sprouts a growth of moss,ferns or other flora. This was an old stump, now covered in moss, and looking like a cartoon image of an old shaggy dog.
I found it while wandering through Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Provincial Park, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
