139. Ground Level

While exploring Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park we came across these huge red mushrooms…I had never seen mushrooms this large, let alone red….

  1. Those will save the whole Systerhood going out gathering toadstools for months! – What a find and welcome back!

  2. Fantastic ground level shot of them, too! The color is so different. I wonder if they are edible?

  3. welcome back to the blogging world 🙂
    the mushrooms looks like the Karl Johanssvamp (http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stensopp) we have in Sweden and they can be up to about12-15 cm’s. I don’t know if that is huge for you 😉

  4. It looks like you could almost carve them out and live in them!

  5. Welcome back Tammy hope you had a great trip! Sounds like you did and had a great break from technology for all of you.

    Very beautiful color and texture. Mother nature is pretty spectacular!
