Photo – An extraterrestrial mushroom
My cabin is near the two of the highest waterfalls, east of the Rockies and 150 yards from an early 19th century gold mine. The 68 ” of rainfall each year and high gold content of the soil produce some spectacular wildflowers. However, this mushroom on a tree in back of the cabin, wins the cake. It is about 5″ in diameter.
