I thought I would bring your eyes a little lower today. I decided to take a break from the glorious vistas and share some views of the ground that we walk on. I found this form of peat moss to be very interesting. I love how intricate it is even at a very small scale. One activity I love is finding a patch of moss and testing it for sponginess. Some moss is so thick, you just sink right into it. I call it nature's memory foam mattress. I am always on the look out for a great patch to take a nap on. Yesterday was another great day for watching the clouds roll by. The high was 65 with a low of 48.
