Emergency rainbow post

As regular readers know and are sick to death of hearing, I've got a backlog of things to post, but yesterday’s hike overwhelmed me with sheer volume and colors, so here’s a quickie post just to show you the crazy diversity of fungi when conditions are optimal.

I won't sully these with little facts and stories; just look!

At the end there’s a few marvelous non-fungal forest inhabitants.

I found all this (and a ton of other things that didn't make the blog cut) in about three hours.
