Red Bogmoss

Sphagnum moss or peat moss, is an ancient and primitive life form, native to Canada and the northeastern U.S.

I found a huge area covered with it at the Wellhead Protection Area of lake Arrowhead. It's incredibly soft and cushiony, almost spongey. Red peat moss is often found as a green mass when it grows in the shade.
