Fungi Growth On The Trail by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

Weekends often mean a family hike. On this beautiful winter day, we found ourselves on the Kit Wright Nature Trail at Fort Getty.

Passing a tree, we found an astounding array of fungi at the base of a tree trunk. This is usually significant. Under most circumstances, fungi means that there is internal decay in a tree. This is the moment when I will look up and make certain that a branch fall on me.

Having made certain that nothing would fall on us, we became intrigued by the woodsy colors. The little scene was unusual for being alongside a salt marsh. We love finding things that one might not expect on Conanicut Island. One of our surprises from Jamestown, Rhode Island.
