enchanted mushroom forest

We have a favorite forest about 40 minutes from us where we go to camp, hike, and forage for wild foods. A few weeks ago, after the rains had fallen and the temperature began rising, we tried a new trail that led us through a small loop around a damp valley. I called it the Enchanted Mushroom Forest because everywhere you looked, scores of mushrooms of all sizes and colors were popping up through the forest. We did not find any of the chanterelles that we were looking for, but we had a good time.
