I’m in no way a mycologist – and this isn’t about magic mushrooms . In my culinary adventures I landed on some mushroom foraging groups. I didn’t realize there were entire communities of people who go out into the woods and look for different kinds of mushrooms. Some are foraging to eat. Some are foraging just out of interest. Some just take pictures. I think I fall into that third category. My walks on trails have become a lot more interesting now that I’m aware of the many kinds of shrooms out there. Below are a few pics I saw in the Great Smoky Mountains state park in Tennesee.
