For the past week I've been in the mountains of northern New York, where shrooms are all the rage. You'd think there would be more varieties of fungus in the tropics, and maybe there are, but most of them must be invisible to the naked eye or live only in your internal organs. Here the shrooms take pride in springing up through any lawn, golf course, forest floor, or bed of moss, and vibrantly displaying their bright colors and bizarre designs, like strange undersea life.
Since I don't know any of their scientific names, I made up names myself:
The Giant Brown Shrooom
The Moon Shroom
The Hallucinogenic Shroom
The Cup Shroom
The White Pagoda Shroom
The Potato Shroom
The Mexican Tile Shroom
And finally...The Coral Shroom!
From the side it looks white...
From the top, orange!
