Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

Community Mushroom Hunt: Photo Batch # 1

This past weekend we sponsored a Mushroom Hunt with our community from the Anchorage Pagan Meetup. We had a marvelous time & are so thankful for everyone who joined us. What a gift to be able to share with you.
As promised, I am posting photos of the mushroom species described in the handout. As of this writing, I have about 50% of them uploaded (in order of appearance in handout) -- I need to get our external hard drives to add the rest. Below each photo, along with the mushroom name, I have added a (*) if we actually found that mushroom on Sunday. Those of you who missed the hunt can still enjoy some photos of some of Nature's greatest organisms. (Click on any photo to enlarge it.) Blessings My Friends.
