Shelter from the storm

When it rains in the forest ...

Leaves catch the drops before they hit the ground.

East Branch of the Swift River in Massachusetts
is running high for the fall
September 2011

Then mushrooms grow in the moist leaf litter below.

Not a bad shelter for forest gnome

It's been a rainy fall in New England.

That mushroom appears to be huge! The lush New England forest is beautiful.

Never eat a wild mushroom unless you are an expert mushroom hunter. We saw a couple that were bright orange that were definitely poisonous.
