Hidden Treasures

Last week I took a few days to hike and camp in the beautiful White Mountains in New Hampshire. Though the elusive moose escaped me yet again, I did spy some incredible sites hiding in the forest floor like these mushrooms.


The variety of shapes and bright colors of the mushrooms amazed me. Have you seen mushrooms that look like these before?

photos by me!

  1. Wow. Those are cool. Almost other worldly.

  2. Very colorful. The mushrooms around here (Georgia) are mostly white.

  3. Wow, those are beautiful! I live about two hours from the White Mountains, so I go up there a lot. Glad you like them 🙂

  4. I haven't. They look magical. Better not eat these or they may have to send a search party out for you as you disappear into the forest on a mystical journey.

  5. They look more like flowers than mushrooms – very cool!

  6. I've never seen mushrooms like those before, but they're beautiful!

    The craziest mushrooms I've ever seen were in the French Alps. They're large, bright red button mushrooms with white polka dots — just like we typically draw when we're children! Apparently the iconic mushrooms often found in fairytale drawings really exist. But I was told never to touch them; they're highly poisonous.

  7. the one on the right is so awesome – i have seen one similar to the one on the left at my uncle's cabin.

    Here's a link


  8. they are so pretty! But don't eat 'em…

  9. I've never seen any mushrooms like these! They're awesome.

  10. Very cool. I love the red one. At first glance, I thought they were flowers. I wonder if they're poisonous? Probably the red one for sure.

  11. it was indeed awesome. We found it just a few minutes before we left

  12. Those are gorgeous. Just don't eat them! :p

  13. Wow… super cool!!! I love the orange one!!

  14. Beautiful – I thought they were flowers at first glance!

  15. Wow. Those are gorgeous, and no, I have never seen any like that. Btw, I absolutely ADORE moose!! 🙂

  16. I've never seen anything like these mushrooms before. They don't look like mushrooms. I wonder what species of fungus they are??

  17. I'm your newest follower!

  18. I've not seen such bright mushrooms before. Wonder if these are hallucinogenic? 🙂

  19. I love funky fungi. I pass a downed tree on my walk that has these layered mushrooms that look like it is wearing a taffeta brides maid dress–always wish I had a camera.

  20. I've never seen mushrooms like those. I wouldn't eat them!

  21. Those are pretty. I especially like the orange one – what a vivid color.

  22. They almost look like flowers. Great photos.

  23. I agree with Patti – great pics! And no, I've never seen mushrooms like these! The ones around here are white (ivory). Every year I get a couple exceptional ones in my yard. They start out looking like – a mushroom (imagine!), then they turn into an umbrella, then a plate, and then a bowl. They're really *trippy* and these changes take place over the course of 2-3 days. It's kind of cool to watch them morph from one stage to the next! 🙂

  24. Whoa, cool. So in a wrod: no. I haven't seen mushrooms like that at all before.

  25. Just stopping by all the blogs I follow – Thought I would check in with everyone! Stop by The Wormhole if you get a chance!

  26. methinks those are called chanterelles, divine eating 🙂

    or like you say, hallucinogenic, if i'm wrong! 😛 lol

  27. I did not touch these mushrooms at all. I’ve heard too many stories of accidentally poisoning.

  28. Falen those are cool shrooms. The one that is as big as a hand must have been wild.

  30. Hi RoseBelle!

    Note: Ya, I’m sure their either hallucinogenic or poisonous.

    Hart: I saw something like that too. It was so beautiful and kinda creepy at the same time.
