Harriman Fungi

Here are some of the fungi we saw on July 29th by Stony Brook in Harriman State Park, NY. There were more mushrooms than I have seen in years that day. Conditions must have been just right. I did my best to ID these with my two books on Fungi. I am not 100% sure if I got them right. If there are any mycologists out there who can correct me, please do.

Need I say, do not eat the Destroying Angel, Amanita bisporigera – Wikipedia. I included the Indian Pipes, Monotropa uniflora – Wikipedia which is a plant and not a fungus.

Day at Harriman

An all day trip to Harriman State Park (ny.gov), Orange County, New York on July 29th plus with stops at Iona Island and Greenbrook Sanctuary | Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey (njpalisades.org) in New Jersey on the way home.

We hiked along a trail by Stony Brook for a few miles. All along the trail was a bonanza crop of Fungi. I’ll be posting those tomorrow.
