Weather: Grey cloud cover but no rain
I found this in the front yard at a house right beside Mclean Creek Park. The house is located right on the edge of a clear cut. The dominate overstory species in the area range from Douglas fir, Grand fir, and Western Redcedar to Alder and baby Douglas fir growing in the clear cut. Around the edge of the property the most dominant understory species where Red huckleberry, salal, swordfern and some invasive species of blackberry and closer to the road scotch broom.
I’m not completely sure about the ID on this one; I found patches of Polytrichum juniperium growing on the ground in the more disturbed areas near the driveway. They look similar but the tops of the false Polytrichum where distinctively different and then Polytrichum juniperium.
