Here are some pics of different assorted fungi I found in the mountains this past weekend while hiking the AT for 20 miles.
















And a nice waterfall for your viewing pleasure :)

I hiked from hightower gap to amicalola fall(the end of the trail) its about an 18 mile 2 day hike, pretty tough steep grades at the beginning, but it levels off once you get down the trail a bit. Only hiked the Georgia sectionms never anywhere else. But me and a close friend have a serious plan to hike the entire trail from Georgia to Maine next year hopefully. Its just finding the time to take off and leave for 6-7 months. But we will hike the entire trail in the near future.

As far as magic mushrooms go, there aren't any that I'm aware of. The only possible candidate I can think of is Psilocybe caerulipes, growing from rotted hardwood along river and stream backs, so when you go to fill those water bottles up, take a good look around while your there. BTW: have a great hike on the AT, its a beatiful time of year to be on the trail :)

I use a sony cybershot digital camera, paid just under 4 for it. You can get it for less than $350 now if you look for deals.

One type of mushroom that is "active" which may be found on the trail is Amanita muscaria. It doesnt contain any psilocybin, but it does have other psychoactive compounds(Muscimol). If you are looking for more info on Amanitas then check out the Amanita section at Shroomery or check out http://www.erowid.org/plants/amanitas/amanitas.shtml

Correct me if I'm wrong(I'm no expert) but I think that the 5th and 6th pictures that LizardKing posted are a yellow variety of Amanita muscaria. Like I said, I'm not 100% sure.

Peace out

Yep, those sure look like A. muscaria var. formosa. More nauseating & less intoxicating than the blood-red variety, according to many reports, but still pretty to look at.

First two photos are too dark to hazard a guess. Third one is some kind of Hygrocybe for sure--that's an unmistakable genus--but I haven't seen that species before.
