Hall of Mosses
The vast amount of rainfall in New Zealand’s fiord land nourishes a temperate rain forest enchanted by mosses that is comparable to Olympic in northwestern USA. In contrast, the vegetation type is completely different. Most of these trees are living fossils originating from the isolation of the Gondwana continent about 190 million years ago.
