Day Two

Today was our second day collecting and after bringing back several duffle bags worth of species the day before, we decided to slow down a bit and limit ourselves to only a few duffle bags. We spent most of our time exploring sites with old growth – we went pretty deep into the forest and I have a terrible sense of direction so I stayed in the middle of our pack for most of the walk (I also have a pretty rotten sense of balance and had a couple of close calls hopping over streams and climbing over rocks). We made a lot of good finds, including 3 more Cordyceps (which are my new favorite fungi). Someone needs to make a horror movie starring them because they are just down right creepy.
