Solomon's Seal

In mature undisurbed woodlands, the rich layer of dead leaves decomposes to nourish dense colonies of plants. These woodlands are lush and thickly green in comparison to places that have been disturbed or allowed to be crowded by invasive species. When you see masses of groundcover like these, know you are in a special place.

Especially when those masses of midwest woodland groundcover are found on the north side of a 7000 foot tall island that is hovering in the sky above the desert.
