As spring looms, pacific rainforests explode with color

I like to imagine myself with Dr. Seuss whenever I spend time in a Pacific coastal rain forest. What strange and marvelous worlds would that man conjure if he spent an hour among the plant colonies thriving on a nurse log or tree branch? Tree-lichen kingdoms and moss-bearded giants would surely find their way into his imagination (and mine) when I stroll with him. It’s not difficult to play the game because temperate rain forests are so rich with unusual nooks and crannies, and chock full of amazing little critters.
