Hiking in the Adirondacks means color! The vibrant greens of spring and summer, and the rich oranges, golds, reds of autumn gives wonder to the heart and depth to the senses. But not just when you’re looking up…try looking down! Adirondack Mountain mushrooms and fungi reveal a world of color, beauty and abundant life that is rich, intimate, and delightfully entertaining.

The seeming improbability of their survival amid the rugged terrain of the Adirondacks makes the existence of these fungi even more intriguing.  The number of species may be limited, but they master variations on a theme, resulting in endless colors, sizes and shapes. They are like universes in miniature, some delicate like fairies, some like ogres, but each seemingly unique as a fingerprint. (You can learn more about Adirondack mushrooms here: Adirondack Fungi)

Here is a sampling of some of the Adirondack Mountain mushrooms we saw along the Crane Pond trail in Schroon Lake. Really awesome…just don’t eat ’em! Take a hike in the Ticonderoga region and explore the flora and fauna that make this such a unique region.
