a walk in the woods.
    #747551 - 07/15/02 10:19 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Yesterday my friend and I decided to take a hike up through this green acres protected area with nature trails and a main made lake.

We quickly deviated off the path and went hiking through the "rough" in search of interesting specimens and hopefully something to bring home.

Upon our entrace we snapped this picture:



The person leaning against the tree is me.

Here?s a closer view of the tree i was leaning against.



After some deviation from the path we stumbled upon our first find.



then after some eagle eye spots by my friend we found these next few.




sorry for the blurriness on some of these.



these were some interesting flowers, i have no idea what they are but they grow near tree trunks.

then after about an hour, perhaps we had hit pay dirt.



upon closer inspection....



Guess not rats...

Then after walking some more we hit a whole patch of what looked like pay dirt... here?s a pic of a specimen from that patch.


Aww fucking rats... reached my upload limit for today.. i?ll post that pic of possible pay dirt tomorrow and conclude my story...

hrmm picture two of the tree also didn?t take, i?ll have to send that tomorrow also..

I was going to ID those flowers for him but you beat me to it! I found a bunch of Indian Pipe patches growing in my mom's woods last year and found them really interesting. I thought they were a fungi at first b/c of their lack of chlorophyll, but then I looked them up in our Peterson guide and found that they are actually wildflowers. Quite an interesting species!

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.

that's really cool, i've never seen flowers like that in my life, very interesting specimens.

Anyways i was looking pretty much for any interesting specimen to take a picture of, as we were walking through the woods smoking this huge ass blunt my friend rolled out of chocolate blunt wraps. btw i hate blunts but he insisted and it was his weed, so we smoked a blunt wasting more of his weed than a J.

Anyway looking for any specimen to take a pic of was the goal and hoping to come out with some pans or something was the icing on the cake. we did have some couple close calls but no yields of nothing. Once 3:19 rolls around i finish the pics..

okay we?re walking and we hit what looks from a far to be a nice little patch of pay dirt...
here?s a sample mushroom from that patch.



damn blurriness.. okay so it looks good.. i turn it over and...



woohooo!! dark dark dark gills.. looks promising...
i snap a stem and wait some time for it to blue...
did it blue? damn no! dissapointed was I.
After that last dissapointment we decide not to get hopeful.. we walk all the way up the mountain approx. 2 miles into this meadow near the summit ...climb a tree and snap a nice sunset pic in the meadow.



we then leave and head some ways to anothe rmountain just to snap a panoramic view of the sunset.. to conclude our hike..



and that concludes the tour of my surroundings..

no paydirt =( ... perhaps next time after it rains a good deal.
