For the last couple of weeks I've been painstakingly uploading my photos one at a time to get them in the order I want to share them in. Today I thought I'd experiment and see if Google has magically made things better with their sorry excuse for a software update. They have not. So the first photo for this post is last, which is kind of fun, since I think I found the best first... follow me? Well, just enjoy...

Salmon River Trail fungi (and a few lichen)...
I won't lie, I needed to touch this one to see if it was slimy, slick, or sort of lacquered. It felt lacquered.
This shelf lichen glowed as if it were lit from within.
Have you ever went to sauté chopped garlic and accidently burnt it? I thought these looked like someone sprinkled burnt garlic on them.
I did take a photo with the camera aimed up from below, to capture the underside of the mushrooms, but the sky was so bright it made the image unusable.
Whereas this little guy was showing off his gills with no shame.
The pack was growing...
These look soft, but they were quite hard.
Not sure exactly what this is all about, it seems like it would be more at home on an ocean beach than a forest floor.
And this! That orange looked like it would glow in the dark...
Don't you think?
This doesn't look healthy.
Even more so. I kind of expected the opening on the left to start talking, or maybe blow out smoke.
This pair was my favorite find of the day.
They were so exotic looking, attached to that mossy tree.
I expected the top to have a jelly-like consistency but it was solid, again rather like lacquer.
What a visually rewarding outing this was.
