The Mt Walker trail has areas where the trail goes through fairly thick clumps of wild Rhododendrons. I liked the backlighting showing the leaf veins.

Fall is the time for Amanita Muscaria. I knew someone who ate them for their pyschoactive properties… but it is classified as poisonous. Cooking reduces its toxicity, but also reduces the pyschoactive nature. Better to stick with a nice glass of wine.
