In a Canoe to Up a Tree

My family spent a cool afternoon in the mountains20180813_125423.jpg

paddling around a lake in kayaks and a canoe.


We stick to the perimeter because there is so much to see along the shore.


That’s how I spotted these lovely brackets from the water.


After our time on the water, I tracked down this dead tree.

I had to do some climbing to get these photos.


There were at least three years worth of Ganoderma on the trunk.

I am hesitant to identify any fungi for fear someone will

find that fungus and eat it or make some tea

and lose their liver because of me.


It is a polypore.  That means it has pores instead of gills.

I am so happy that when the flowers start to fade,

the fungi emerge.
