Fire Road Walk

Happy Monday, enjoy your day!

We have been having fun looking for and finding mushrooms and fungi during our walk on the local fire roads near our house.  Some are beautiful colors, neat shapes and sizes. 


The fungi below reminds me of the coral you find in the oceans.


These mushrooms were tiny and very hard to focus on, especially with a tree branch in the way. 




I think this may be Cortinarius, I am guessing there are many different species of purple mushrooms.





This is a view of one of our daily fire road scenes.  This trail is closest to home and we go as far as we want to walk and then turn around and walk back home. We are still seeing a lot of greens but there are plenty of brown leaves covering the trail. 


Below, the mushrooms were growing at the bottom of a dead tree, they are a pretty color and have some weird bumps on the tops. 




We take a little trail to the lake, you can see a tiny bit of fall colors near the lake. Not much! I did see a Double-breasted Cormorant fly by, took quick for a photo.






Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.



Thanks to the hosting team of Our World Tuesday!

  36. I love all the different types of fungi found in the woods. My sister could distinguish edible from poisonous. I'm not that knowledgeable or brave. Lol

  37. Fungi in all its forms is fascinating. I have a hard time identifying many of them, but they are certainly a delight to experience in the forest at this time of year.

    I was moving a large pile of our cuttings back into our wooded area yesterday
