Lantern Hill walking…and odd black things

Howdee all,

Jeff and I walked one of my favorite places just a few miles from where I grew up.

We used to hike Lantern Hill  as kids with Mom and Dad..and have fond memories.

(Oh..I saved the odd black things for the if you want to see them now just skip to the bottom.)

Still mostly yellow and bits of orange here and there.

Lantern hill_022This is always a pleasant walk..Some uphill for exercise..

Lantern hill_026As we reached the top of Lantern Hill we came across Black and Turkey Vultures soaring around..

This one stopped for a rest.

Lantern hill_032A bit more orange..

We did see and hear Golden crowned Kinglets here.

Lantern hill_037I was looking mostly for shrooms on this walk..

and was disappointed that we only saw a few..

Lantern hill_038I did see this gorgeous clump of mushrooms..

Lantern hill_042Nope..I don’t know what these are either.

Lantern hill_041It was a lovely walk none the less…and the yellows were brilliant.

I think we will wait a few days and walk here again.

Lantern hill_043So here are the black things I mentioned..


Is this Beech Bark spot?
