My heart drew me higher and higher, taking care not to disturb the communities growing on the rocks, while pointedly ignoring my brain that was telling me not to climb around alone when the leaf litter was so slippery.

But I managed to find a surprising diversity of mosses nestled on tree trunks, branches, and the soil.
