The Mushrooms are Coming!!!

Firs Mushroom

A sure sign that fall is coming to Cordova is the appearance of these earthy beings!    As the salmonberries and blue berries are departing, the mushrooms begin taking their places!  When they arrive in full force there will be a celebration that Cordovans call the Fungus Festival.  I missed it last year, not realizing that it takes place out on the hiking trails where forestry service workers lead hikes while giving fun facts about fungi along the way!  It’s an event that would make the Shire folk proud!   Hmmmmm…..I think I’ll whisper an invitation into the wind for the trees to carry over the mountains!  Perchance, some travelers from Hobbiton will show up!

  1. I’m a big fan of fungi so I was very interested to read that there are Fungus festivals! Your blog looks very interesting, Charley. Thanks for visiting mine and commenting. 🙂

    1. Oh….I love fungi as well! Last fall I got quite a few photos of the fungi but totally missed the festival. This year I hope to participate by actually going on one of the hikes led by a local forestry person. Thanks for visiting my blog! I’m still kind of new to WordPress and learning the mechanics of how it all works! I’m quite inspired by the blogs of others and was glad to have found yours. I love your combining of hiking, photography, and writing!

      1. Thanks, Charley. I’m still experimenting with my blog and the changes that happen regularly with technology. I may be a little quiet with my blog for a while as I won’t have much time for long walks. Best wishes with your blog. I hope you have a lot of fun with it. That’s the main thing in the end! 🙂
