Autumn Mt Hood over Trillium Lake

I could not resist posting one last view of Trillium Lake, with Mt Hood looming in the distance, and the trees changing their colors along the banks. I will miss this place until it opens again in late spring!

Changing Leaves along the Clackamas River

There are signs of autumn everywhere now, and the colors are, for the most part, at their peak. I find it interesting that some trees have changed dramatically, whereas some have not even begun and are still holding on to their green hues.

Nestled amongst the evergreens was this bright autumn maple, its yellow leaves literally glowing in the sun that broke through the trees.

So .... Many .... Mushrooms!!!

Can anyone help me identify this cool mushroom? I think it is a chanterelle. But while I love hunting mushrooms to photograph, identifying them is not my strong suit.

We went walking around Trillium Lake two weekends ago, and I have honestly never seen so many mushrooms in my whole life. So many varieties! I LOVE photographing mushrooms, but wanted to keep under control, so I only photographed the most interesting varieties. I think I have a new favorite ... until I spot another, more unique variety ;)
