Look at these interesting little things. They are about three inches tall and maybe an inch across. Growing right in the middle of my trail. There's always something new to find!
I'm pretty sure they are smooth puffball, Lycoperdon molle. The closeup of the one on the right is really a good match for the picture in the book. They have a little hole in the top where the spores escape. It says they are common, but not abundant. I don't recall ever seeing them before.
And that makes them very cool!
