Chimney Rock State Park
July 27th, 2013

NOTE: gathering is not permitted in NC state parks.
I was teaching there officially that day.

the Moores on the moor

into the woods

the ornate-stalked bolete

toadsdrool testing

got a light?

Iris finds...

a mushroom etch-a-sketch

velvet foot

time for a poem

"under a toadstool crept a wee elf..."

turkey tails

a little rain means...



ghost pipe

coral mushrooms

nary a mushroom is bug-free

heading back

wait, hold the fungus!

the indigo milk cap

time for lunch!

show and smell: black trumpets...

another milk cap

red Caesar's Amanita

and so mush more

all you can – and can't – eat

final exam (pass/fail)

chicken of the woods

the proof is in the picnic

till next time...
