A walk in the woods.

This little guy was demonstrating he was not taking any crap from my camera. 
Took  a stroll through some local woods this morning, and thought I'd share what I found.

A cool looking mushroom. No clue what kind it is.

Some more cool mushrooms. Also no clue what kind it is.

And then what we came looking for......
Panax Ginseng
Good Ol' Fashioned American Ginseng. Worth several hundred dollars a pound. The season started yesterday. I expect to be spending quite a bit of time find more.

25 year old root. i kinda felt bad once I dug it up. This sucker sprouted for the first time in 1988.
