Miniature Mushrooms

    While wandering along the trails in the Ancient Forest, I came upon this clump of tiny mushrooms growing on the base of a Cedar tree.  Perhaps you can get an idea of the scale of the mushrooms from the fragments of moss and the brown Cedar needle. 
    As we move closer to Autumn we will be seeing more of the many varieties of mushrooms that grow in the forests of the Robson Valley.  When talking about mushrooms, I always like to tell people that “mushrooms” that you see above ground, are just the fruiting body of the plant, most of which is growing underground, and unseen.
