Just like forest floors all over the world, moss, lichen, algae and fungi target fallen trees, trunks and branches in Pinnacles National Park in California. The process in which forest remnants are decomposed provide nutrients for both the reclamation agents and the forest itself, without the need for photosynthesis or chlorophyll. That they are so colorful is a beautiful happenstance for photographers and backwoods hikers alike.
