Name that Moss
To find this letterbox you’ll need to be able to recognize Bryoandersonia Moss (Bryoandersonia illecebra). Here’s a link to a profile: http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/plant-of-the-week/bryoandersonia_illecebra.shtml
The letterbox is located along the Laurel Bluff trail, which is 3.5 miles long. There is parking at either end: Lake Brandt road or North Church street.
Find Location #120, then turn and face downhill, towards the water. Straight ahead you’ll see an outcropping of rocks. You’ll notice a few different kinds of mosses growing on these rocks. Find the one that has the Bryoandersonia Moss growing on it. The letterbox is hidden behind this rock.
Take a moment to enjoy the view from this vantage point.
