North of Pagosa Springs, Colorado
I showed some flowers awhile back but fungi are far more interesting to me.
Several of these Beans gets credit for finding them.
I wonder how these survive the snow and freezing cold of winters.
This type may be seasonal wonders meaning they grow this much in one year and die off.
But these guys, shelf fungi, take years to get this big.
This by far was my favorite find and I've only seen this one.
It is about the size of a ping pong ball. The cap was very hard, much like shoe leather.
