All photos Assiniboine Forest, Winnipeg, MB. February 24, 2012.

* * *

It was a blustery day, but, as always, it was better once we got under Assiniboine Forest's trees. And once we'd worked up a head of steam.

As is becoming a winter mushrooming staple, we hiked over the frozen bog in the middle of the forest to the island. Which I like to imagine is a kind of mushroom Galapagos but mostly contains the same downed trees and shrubbery as the rest of the forest...

Anyways, I found a few old mushrooms. And took these pictures.
