SciFi Fungi - Further Down Grant Creek Trail, Missoula, Montana

A guy walks into the doctor's office.
A carrot stuck in one of his ears, a cucumber in the other ear, and a mushroom stuck in one nostril. 

The man says, "Doc, this is terrible. What's wrong with me?" 

The doctor says, "Well, first of all, you need to eat more sensibly." 

(Aaaand that's all the silliness for today! 
This mushroom was intensely interesting - the velvety-looking texture (of course I didn't touch it!) of the top combined with its swooping curves brought to mind a manta ray swimming. But the layered sections and lines also could inspire fantastic design for an intergalactic spaceship. 
Any other dreamy fungi thoughts out there?)

Q: Why does Ms. Mushroom go out with Mr. Mushroom? 

(Profound thought for the day, I know!)

A: Because he is a fungi (fun guy)!

Recycling Hope - Bitterroot River, Hamilton, Montana

"You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen."
