Ferns of Van Damme State Park

After tidepooling we went to Van damme State Park were we hiked beautiful Fern Canyon Trail to the Pygmy Forrest.

As the name suggests, the trail was lined with ferns. My favorite fern was northern maidenhair fern (five-fingered fern), which caught my eye due to its unusual curved purple-black stalks and delicate flourescent-green leaves.
