Star moss with grass and more

Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Bull's Bridge, Connecticut.

 

Did a short hike to check on a section of the AT I maintain that had a recent fire on it (250 acres burned). It was mostly a leaf fire and burnt the understory but most of the trees were spared. And, now, a few summer months later, things are growing back.

 

This star moss was right on the edge of the fire and somehow survived.
