Extreme Shrooms and Phobias
Warm humid high 80s partly cloudy up to mid-afternoon followed by overcast and light sprinkles followed by late evening clearing and a three quarter moon.
The SNP staff at the boundary station is changing. Look for new faces, new personalities, and new styles. The elite Old Rag Boundary Station alumni grows a little larger.
Awesome mushroom specimens seen on this circuit.
Sometimes I am guilty of over photoshopping but not on this next photo. It truly was this very bright almost neon orange. I wonder if this mushroom is photo-luminescent at night?
April joined me up to the first false summit but her schedule required her to head home early. After saying goodbye to April I slowly made my way up to the summit which I left shortly before sunset and traveled out via the Saddle Trail and fire roads with about an hours worth of pleasant conversation with various back-country campers.
A picture of April just before she had to head home earlier in the day.
Lots of Woodland Sunflowers (Hellianthus divarcutus)
