Smiley face…

Still in the ravine, but not for much longer as another outing was drawing to close.

A tall fairy forest of mosses’ green capsules stretching to the sky!

The mushrooms had started to shriveled up and hopefully their spores had spread.

A short shrub was just covered in lichens! Often I wonder why some trees have lots and another right next to it hardly has a one. Mysteries!

So many lichens! All types had representatives; fruticose, crustose, and foliose!

Lichens, grass, green and brown mosses make for a color clump!

Common Woodsia fern!

Club shaped root, at least from this angle 😉

I did not mean to do this, but it turned out funny. Jeanne looked to be a mythical person from the Illiad or some Greek myth. The person who became a tree or was it the tree that became a person? Hmmm, you decide 😉

A tree that might have been mythical?

Tiny puffball(+/-1 cm).

Ganoderma fungi!

Like the song by Kansas, “Dust in the Wind”, the spores danced off to find a new start!

We left behind this smiley face as we concluded another outing!
