I am not sure if this requires too much of a leap of faith for the identification. It visually matches this species very well, but I know there are some species that look similar. There is no ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) in the area, but there is shore pine (P. contorta var. contorta). This species is known to infest other pines, including lodgepole pine (of which shore pine is a variety).

In steppe, near the edge of saline pond. Originally thought Tortula brevipes but the awns should be smooth and leaf margins revolute. Doesn't seem to fall anywhere comfortably within McIntosh (1986). Unsure if Tortula or Syntrichia. If Syntrichia, I keyed it to S calcicola calcicola which doesn't make sense (not known from North America). Doesn't match up with the saline endemic Tortulas (nevadensis and heimii)
