Lovely color! There were abundant croppings of these sweet mushrooms growing everywhere along the Thunder Creek trail hike that we did in the North Cascades Washington in mid October 2007.
Creamy pink and beige - colors an interior decorator would love. These were growing along the Wonderland Trail on Mt. Rainier. August 2007.
Ahhhhhh, how the light shines through. North Cascades Washington in mid October 2007.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA: Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Skykomish Ranger District - the Tonga Ridge/Sawyer Pass/Fisher Lakes Trail #1058. October 6, 2006. Another shot of these most unusual (to us anyway) growths. These looked to be BLOOMING lichens. See an ealier picture in this gallery of the pink ones. This was the standout hike where we also later ran into a BEAR just off the trail. Mark scared it up a tree and we skeedaddled down the trail!!!
October 2006, Tonga Ridge trail, in the Skykomish area. Washington state. We have never seen these lacy spurs on a mushroom stem before.
A Triton fungus ... scuba divers will get this! Seen on the Lake Serene, Trail 1068, a hike in the Washington's Alpine Lakes region, Skykomish Ranger District. Photographed on October 1, 2006.
