Wicked Walk 10/8/2014

Today was a special day!  My little sister, who has been globe-trotting for about 5 years, flitted down at home base for awhile and came to walk with me.  I rarely take people with me when I walk, and have never taken another adult, so I made sure she knew how lucky she was!  (that was supposed to be funny).  Down the road and thru the forest we went.

Here is what we saw.


I pass this felled, moss covered tree often.  I’m not sure why it caught my eye today but it did……

…..the amount of life found in just a few square inches fascinates me.

walk fungi

This was lying in the trail.  Fungi on a stick.  Sounds like a treat you would find at a carnival for monsters.

“Slimy Fungi-On-A-Stick!  Get’em ‘fore they be gone!”

Did I mention it was a monster carnival with a pirate theme?  Well, it was.

They would probably sell these as well, who needs cotton candy when THIS is available?

“Ringed-Rubber Flakes, Ringed-Rubber Flakes!  Get’em now, get’em quick, they’re better than Fungi-on-a-stick!”

I think I’ll just have a funnel cake.

Here is my sister, she is poking a stick in some weird fuzz we found…

Weird fuzz up close.

It reminded me of an ensnared alien brain.  Not that I’ve ever seen an ensnared alien brain, but if I did I bet It’d look just like this!

Since I hadn’t seen my sister in almost a year I spent a great deal of time talking and not looking where I was going which almost resulted into my full-fledged transformation into Chuck Norris thanks to this spider….who was very much alive.

My sister thought it was funny.

Hereeee Lizard, Lizard!

I love mushrooms.

walk flower

The flowers are getting smaller, fewer and farther between…..

Everywhere I looked I seemed surrounded by fungi…..on sticks.

walk rita

Rita, an archeology major, found this rock in the road.  She said it was a scraper, that some Indian dropped it a really long time ago.  Since I know nothing about Indian’s, scrapers or rocks in general I’m going to settle for a picture.  I like rocks.

walk butterfly

And butterflies.  I like butterflies even more than rocks.

Thanks for joining us today, until next time!

Have a great day y’all!
