Well, not really although some have called me that and the liverwort is found naturally growing in the area of CA often labeled as sasquawatch land.
The light levels are extremely low, these are all hand held images at 1/15th of second. I do not drink coffee obviously
I measured 20 micro moles of light in most sections. That was at full sun, so these trees make it like night. Yes, they are 300-350ft tall and even the little ones in an old growth forest like this outsize everything you have seen beside the Sequoia up in the sierras.
The forest is massive, you cannot understand the scale in any of the pics, there is more biomass per acre than any other type of ecosystem in the world, tropical rainforest include, which this is (temperate, about 80 inches a per year). This is an extremely lush place. We took a 10 mile hike to the ocean along this trail and it was solid 200-350ft forest the whole way packed with 5- 6 species of ferns, trees growing on top of trees.
Close up of it on rocks:
Fern canyon, a 50 ft deep canyon and creek that's about 3/4 mile like this. Rare "tailed" frogs live here, only saw tad poles this time.
Pic of the liverwort in the water:
Note, moving water and no light and no tripod!
Very common on rocks.
Here's a very pretty little falls with 5 fingered ferns:
Here's the pic of a slug eating sasaquawatch. Note the size of these leaves. They are gaints. So are banana slugs if you have never seen a whopper.

And to give some idea of the scale of these trees:
We saw hundreds of trees this size or larger.
Enjoy, get out and see the world.
You should see places like this before you die and then protect them so that the future can be left in awe.
