I had a question about metaphors. What does something like "mossy rock-slides" or "alpine slopes" fall under? Are they metaphors or just descriptive language? Thanks, God Bless! :)

Hi, and welcome to Using English.

Those both sound like simple description. To me, they are no different than "green house."

Alpine should have a capital A, I believe.
