This tree near Cedar Falls in the Hocking Hills has been down for a while. I stopped to examine what’s happening with it on my hike Monday night and was delighted to find that it is serving an all new purpose.
There are several varieties of fungi growing on and around it now. This one is kind of fancy.
The red looks a little scary.
By the way, my apologies for the headline. I couldn’t resist the pun!
“Back in the day” a friend and I were hiking at Old Man’s Cave, and we kidded that we were looking for a “fun guy”! (For some reason, these things stick in my brain.)
Hahaha. Why DO we remember the silly stuff?
