Photo: Plenty of fog. This bank came in early in the evening and has been around all night.Photo: Eucalyptus trees across the road from the restoration areaPhoto: The pavement is barely wet. The ground next to the tree is dry. The bark and debris to the left is moist, but on the right is still dry.Photo: The eucalypti across the road.Photo: Judging from the amount of moisture on the ground, these eucalypti are not terribly efficient at extracting moisture from the fog.Photo: A lot of canopy for very little moisture.Photo: The ground is as wet, if not more wet, under these small oaks, than it is under those very tall eucalyptus by the road.Photo: Under coast redwoods. As you can see, the ground is saturated.Photo: Glistening wet rocks in mud under the redwoods. And these trees are babies.Photo: The ground beneath the redwoods is sopping wetPhoto: Nothing comes close to coast redwoods for condensing the fog.Photo: With every gentle breeze, a shower below. And plenty more drops where those came from.Photo: Wet planks under the redwood treesPhoto: Muddy trail under the coast redwoods.
Comparing eucalyptus fog drip to the fog drip of these trees is ludicrous!Photo: Wet understory from the above canopy of the young oak, whose trunk is pictured here.Photo: Wet and dripping oak leaves.Photo: Hard to see here, but the lichen collects fog as well. 
Still a nice picture :-)Photo: The lichens and mosses (which are noticeably absent from eucalypti) also condense the fog in large droplets that fall to the forest floor.Photo: The Willow Trail steps in the fogPhoto: The redwoods here are less than 6 feet tall. Most of the moisture here is from the bay canopy above.
See the pair of trilliums?
Zoom in and see them glisten with moisture.Photo: Bay canopy providing a light shower for the understory belowPhoto: Here near the ground, under the fog, the lichen somewhat is dry.Photo: Giant vetch enjoying a light shower from the sparse bay canopy above. The sheen on the poison oak is water.Photo: Here is the moisture source for the giant vetch below. Bay leaves and
lichen combine to form an impressive extractor.Photo: Wet path from the nearby oak canopy. About the same amount as the eucalyptus across the street.
