Mushrooms

We encountered a few dozen different types of mushrooms during one of our recent walks through our trail – it’s been such a rainy summer this year. We don’t know what most of them are, but if you recognize any please let us know! Here’s a sampling of the neat ones we found.

Update: This first photo is not a mushroom at all. My mom let me know that this is called Indian pipe or ghost plant – turns out it is a perennial plant that does not contain chlorophyll.

We also spotted a few neat ones over the winter – you can see the photos in our Winter album on Facebook.

    Hi Corinne,

    The first one I can help you with. It actually isn’t a mushroom, but a plant called IndianPipe. Grows well in wooded areas with decaying organic matter.

    All I can tell you about the others is that they are really cool! You have a very diverse assortment of mushrooms!

    Isn’t nature wonderful?
