Mushroom Hunting

Mushroom Hunting


colorful fungi 

mushrooms fill the forest floor

a hunter’s delight

spores, yeast, molds, mushrooms galore

calling all mycologists


I had a blast finding and photographing mushrooms on my hike this past Monday. It was my first day out in about a month, and the forest was filled with an amazing variety and amount of mushrooms, fungi, etc. I guess all the rain we’ve has stirred a bloom in fungi. Here is a small sampling of all the fungi that I found. I don’t know their names, but they sure are interesting. I think it would be fun to go mushroom hunting with an expert mycologist to learn more about them and know which ones are edible. Any mycologists out there?

  3. I’m sure you had a blast taking pictures of them. We had a hike back then that I wished that I had taken the camera with me. We will be redoing that hike again and I will be bringing that camera, no matter what.
