Mushroomy Day

We waited for a lull in the endless rain to jump into the car and head to the unmarked nature trail nearby the house.  The kids were really excited to go to their "jungle gym" again, and Kolachi has discovered the joys of a flexi-lead when we hike.  Our adventure was wet, green and golden.
Today we were surprised by the tens and tens of mushrooms that were popping up all over the trail.  Now I have a new goal- to figure out how to forage for wild mushrooms!  We found at least four varieties-- from tall, spindly 'umbrellas' to short, squat solid ones.  I'm looking forward to doing some research and finding out what we discovered-- and whether any of them are edible!
