Cross-Country Connections: Mushroom

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Mushroom.

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

This is one of my CONvergence souveniers – a Mario Bros power-up mushroom magnet in “8 bit” art.

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

    Those “mushrocks” are awesome! Now we just need Dana Hunter to explain them for us.

    Working on it! Sandstone weathering isn’t my area of expertise, so I beg your patience as I find out. Those are awesome formations!
