Jessie's Garden - Gallery 5



These mushrooms were growing on a moist shaded area not far off the trail in Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest.  The scene gave me the impression of a small forest within a large forest.

Mushrooms and Moss

There is no place in the world like the floor of  Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest after a rain. A wonderland of different mosses and mushrooms grow from every rock, stump and fallen tree providing an ever changing landscape with each walk through the woods.

Pink Mushrooms

As if by magic after a summer rain, the floor of Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest becomes a virtual garden to a wide variety of colorful mushrooms.

High atop Joanna Bald in Graham County, NC, looking toward Andrews in Cherokee County, NC, is a breathtaking view of the Smokey Mountains.
