Toadstool in the Hoh

The Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park, Washington is about as wet as it gets… 13 ft (4m) a year wet.  Which means it’s also about green as it gets and teaming with life.  While I was there, there were all these little mushrooms sprouting through the green forest floor.  One of the photogs with me turned out to be a walking encyclopedia of mushroom knowledge (which raises its own questions).  Apparently these little guys basically grow from nothing to full size almost overnight.  Who knew?  Oh, and I still couldn’t tell you if eating this one would fall into the category of tasty, fun, or not fun.
