This summer in Colorado has been spectacularly rainy. That doesn’t comes without it’s downsides, but one upside are the fungi.

A week ago I took an early morning hike around the Snowshow Hare Trail in Golden Gate Canyon State Park (from Rifleman Philips to Dude’s fishing hole and back.) When I got to the moist area below the fishing hole … I started coming upon these guys.

All photos are taken by a phone, and were taken from the trail:

Note: Do NOT eat wild fungi. Some can be harmful and worse; irreparable liver damage & death. Enjoy the looking, but don’t touch.
