It's a Mushroom kind of day here in Denali Wilderness, Alaska

The noticeable lack of mushrooms dotting the plant life in Alaska's often dense, wet environment had puzzled me until last week.  It was then, that I saw a huge 5" across mushroom pushing up through a heavy 1" thick layer of ground moss.  The mushrooms had arrived.

Last night around 10 p.m.( yes, dark is midnight to 4 a.m., maybe...) I took some photos of wild flowers along the banks of the Savage River, here in Denali Wilderness area.  This morning, while walking my dog Pete, I photographed
mushrooms for about 20 minutes while walking through a forested area.  Beautiful and many were large.  Some were 6-9" wide at the top.
