We start this archive look, with what looks like a “deck of leaves”, ready to play a hand of colorful poker perhaps? Tina Hyrkas snapped this fun photo back in 2005, showing the array of colors from the different varieties of trees here UP North.
Then in 2008, Art Brabbs was visiting Fayette State Park during their Fall Fest Celebration. This two day event was developed to help bring more people to the state park during a typically slow part of their season and that it did. The 61 unit campground had 50 sites filled, where they usually averaged 7 to 10 before Fall Fest began. Activities included a campsite decorating contest, trick or treating at the townsite, pumpkin bowling, hayrides, pumpkin painting, and much more. Sounds like a fun time.
The following year, in 2009, we joined Stacey Sedar and her kids at Somero Farm Pumpkin Patch, where the kiddos posed with the pumpkins, before picking out which ones they were going to take home to carve.
Stacey Flood was in a different kind of patch this past week, a mushroom patch, where she found these colorful and interesting looking fungi. I have no clue what they are called or whether they’re safe to eat or poisonous. All I know is they’re quite colorful there on the forest floor. Always remember if you’re not sure if a mushroom is safe for consuming, leave it in the woods.
Three years ago, Discovering host, Brian Whitens had an episode on Fall Mushrooms (and a giant sunflower contest, too). I’m hoping this video will help all of us mushroom hunters to be able to identify some of the edible, safe mushrooms here in the North Country.
