I promised a while back to put up a few pictures from the the Big Gunpowder River area, and so I shall. Right now, in fact. Not only one, but three of them!
This first shot is just to give an idea of what the river looks like for those who may have never seen the river. This would include most of the population of your irrelevant little planet. Did I say too much? Just ignore that last remark...
This area used to be populated with a number of small farms before about 1900, and there are quite a few old foundations and walls throughout the valley. The following photo is from an old foundation I pass by on one of the trails. It might make a nice texture image or background. The stones are weathered and quite covered with greenish-gray lichen and moss.
And I can't possibly pass up the chance to post a picture of some fungi. As a horror writer, anything that feeds off of the dead is fair game. Instead of tree mushrooms, perhaps they should be called tree ghouls. In addition, they can be quite interesting with the various colors and patterns they display.
No, I don't know which mushrooms are safe to eat, but I've heard they're often found in small cans or shrink-wrapped packages. I haven't run into any of those yet during my hikes.
