North Country Color Wheel

Had a chance to take a quick 6-mile walk on the North Country Trail today. Everyone is posting pictures of mushrooms because it's been so wet those are this year's flowers. Me too! Here you go.

Red- I'm not going out of my way to ID any of these but these are red Russula sp. Past their prime, but still very red.

For orange you get these cuties.

Yellow fingers- an apt name.

yellow fungus

Green- a stump turned into a terrarium with moss and mushrooms.

Blue- sorry, no blue fungus, but a blue blaze to mark "my" trail.

And a nice light purple polypore. (Not violet-toothed because it doesn't have teeth)

purple fungus

It was a great day for a walk in the woods- in the sixties, most of the bugs are gone.

I'm way behind on the NCT 100-Mile Challenge, but this gets me up to 48 miles.

Lots of mushrooms here too, and lots of huking on the trail.

What a nice variety of color you've found in the fungi community.
