||South-west from Bozeman, Rocky Mountains. Subalpine temperate coniferous forest. Natural old stand with sparse multilayer canopy and a lot of coarse woody debris. The whole landscape is forested, but there are paths which are used by tourists. Understory is grass and herb rich, with quite a little cover of bryophytes. Grasses in the field layer, including Poa spp, also forbs such as Lupinus spp etc. A path used by tourists is quite close. There are signs of former fire on trunks (maybe 10-20 years ago). Codominant trees Pseudotsuga menziesii and Pinus contorta. Also Juniperus scopulorum etc. Grasses cover quite a lot in the field layer, including Poa spp, there are also forbs such as Lupinus spp etc. Tourist path nearby, but no real impact on the ground vegetation.
