WTF?

That's a new one for me! I haven't encountered that on the trails.

Re: WTF?

My thoughts exactly! I've seen plenty of fungi, especially since my trip to the Smokies last year, but nothing remotely like that.

Re: Is that

They look kind of leafy, but I think that they are spines. Very interesting stuff.

Re: Hericium erinaceus???

Good catch, Sarah. I did some research, and Hericium are supposed to be good to eat.
