Once I arrived at my next secret trail head (with no water crossing to negotiate) mushrooms were all over the place, more than I've ever been able to locate at any other time before.
They were so happy after waiting for the rains for so long.
These are called Turkey Tails
and I just don't remember seeing them so brilliantly colored before.
They last year around but are usually dried out and pale colored.
The rain makes them come to life in full technicolor.
It's been so long since it last rained real good I think I just forgot what they are suppose to look like.
I am back out there today looking for more. For me the hunt is as much fun as photographing them.
