Another sampling from Pyramid Lake Trail - pretty white 'fans'.
Mark captured the light through these specimens beaultifully. Pyramid Lake trail in the North Cascades Washington in mid October 2007.
Looks like heart healthy onion studded burger buns, eh? - Again Mt. Baker ~ Park Butte Trail #603 and Railroad Grade Trail#603.2, September 2006.
This was seen bicycling on the Signal Ditch Trail in Northglenn Colorado. The supply of mushrooms is greatly reduced here in Colorado. This specimen was snuggled tightly to the ground. It almost looked like a lost golf ball at first sight!
At last, we saw another example of this forest 'jelly'. Our first came about in the North Plains, state of Oregon in 2005. This was in the Snoqualmie Washington, Alpine Lakes hiking region. This photo was taken in Macro mode on hike along the Pacific Crest Trail section 2000. September 2006.
Spider Meadow hike, Glacier Peak Wilderness area Washington - September 2007. I like the 'golf-ball' shrooms, they just please our eyes. What a lovely symmetry they offer.
Squak Mountain State Park, Washington state. Seen on October 19, 2007.
Another Squak Mountain State Park, Washington state specimen. Seen on October 19, 2007.
Near Deception Creek, Steven's Pass Washington area. Just when you think you have seen all the mushrooms the Pacific Northwest could possibly sprout, there crops up cute little dimpled ones! November 11, 2007.
Wild looking, isn't it?!! A macro shot taken on a hike - Thunder Creek Trail, North Cascades Washington in October of 2007. This was by far the most interesting and beautiful specimen we saw on this trail.
