Another thing, besides lichen, that we were drawn to in the forest was all the fungi! These perfect toad stools above and below popped up in the few hours we were out hiking, and we noticed them immediately upon returning to our cabin. We also were amazed at what we found on hidden paths and had to share. Some of the fungi is so lovely in color. And others, like the purple, are a little frightening! I had no idea there were purple mushrooms!
