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: 

CCC Mushroom Mom

These rocks at Southern Illinois’ Garden of the Gods remind me of the dancing mushrooms in Fantasia.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

CCC Mushroom Brianne

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

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland:

CCC Mushroom Erin

Evidence that the wild horses of Assateague Island are beneficial to the biodiversity of the ecosystem. Alternative Title: A Mushroom Grows in Horse Poop

    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!
