E got such a kick out of spotting these mushrooms, we would see them way up on the top of cut off (or broken off) Cottonwoods - at least 30 feet up, usually higher.
These ones we found just barely out of the ground, it's actually hard-packed crush.
Imagine something so delicate growing out of hard-packed crush. Mushrooms are amazing.
Then we "saw" our shadows. And we had to play our shadow game so we went from a lovely hand holding walk along the creek.
To a shadow karate show down.
