Shiny clubmoss, Lycopodium lucidulum

This clubmoss is one of the more common in the White Mountains and was prolific along Whitewall Brook in vast carpets several hundred feet across that make the groves where it grows seem enchanted. Here with the shiny clubmoss are two Ground Pine, Lycopodium obscurum, which is also common here. They look like minature pine trees.
