Spotting fungi

 

I always enjoy taking a peaceful stroll in the woods.  Even on gray days, when there is little else to see, a variety of interesting fungi can be spotted along the trail.

A walk in the woods

I enjoy walking the trails around Reelfoot National Wildlife Refuge and seeing the plant and animal life there.  The woods are filled with the sound of the leaves rustling in the trees and birds calling back and forth to each other.   My favorite forest sound is that of a loud barred owl resonating somewhere off in the distance.

“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.”  ~Henry David Thoreau
