It is enough to make you want to become a mycologist! The great number of fascinating and different varieties of mushrooms along the trail at Brendan Byrne State Forest yesterday had me fascinated and my phone/camera clicking every few yards. What a great day to take a hike! And especially in view of the day that followed - today, Saturday, Oct. 11 - a cold, damp, rainy day that has kept me in the house reading, writing, and doing household chores, computer chores and art work.
But yesterday was heavenly, my favorite kind of day - a nice hike on the cranberry trail, a picnic in the shelter by Pakim Pond, and a stop at the Red Top Market on the way home for a bag of winesap apples! I am tempted to hyperbole - well, I'll give in to it - it was the most PERFECT Day in the world! My dog, Trixie, would agree, as would my hiking companion of the day, Barb Spector.
Today I was planning to go to the Book Fair at Collingswood until the weather intervened. But I am happy at home always - that is, if I can't be in the woods.
Happy Autumn, Happy Halloween, nad always Happy Trails! Jo Ann
