Fungus Fest

After G20, I got to go to the Michigan Mushroom Hunters Club's annual Fungus Fest at Proud Lake. Though tired and feeling a bit under the weather, we still found some good mushroooms. Pictured above is the huge bounty of Maitake (or hen of the woods...or Grifola Frondoa if you really prefer). Its hard to get a sense of size in this photo, but this was enough to completely fill my back pack. We found a few other things, but nothing incredibly exciting. on the bike ride home we found some chicken (sulfur shelf) mushrooms on an oak tree too. That ended up being quite the feast. I don't have any pics of those. Its prime time for wild mushrooms, so get out there to find your fest!
