Magical Mushrooms

We have had quite a bit of rain in my part of North Carolina.

We delayed our mountain trip by a day due to more rain.

All that moisture creates the perfect conditions for fungi.

I did not take along my usual camera, so these are from my phone. My shoe is in photos for scale.

At first my daughter got irritated with our stopping for mushrooms.

By the end of the day she was pointing them out to me.

There were hundreds of different types and thousands of them.

Some tiny and others giant. This white one was a foot tall.

It was absolutely magical.

We crested a hill to see thousands of these little orange mushrooms

scattered on both sides of the road.

It was a glorious day.

Rain is a good thing!
