You Eat This Mushroom, You're Gonna See Flying Purple Elephants
....or die more likely :P
I stopped by the Curbstone Valley Farm blog http://curbstonevalley.com/blog/, and saw that they did a weekly feature called 'Mushroom Monday'. I'm not going steal their idea and do this every week or anything, but it reminded me of a weird mushroom that Mr. A and I snapped a picture of.
We were on a weekend excursion to Raleigh, NC for my birthday last May. If we see that there's a cool state/national park in an area we're visiting, we always have to stop and look around or go for a hike. Nothin' like sweatin' on your birthday lol.
This is William Umstead State Park, in the Northern Raleigh area.
Beautiful place, we've been twice. They have such nice, soft walking trails that are so clean and pristine, you almost feel like you're in a movie set forest :)
We were walking along, and I spotted this mushroom. Most toxic looking mushroom I've ever seen! lol
The first picture shows more of a true-life colour than this one, but you can see what I like to call the cluster-mush. :)
Has anyone else seen this one before, or know what it's called?
