Two fungi of particular interest: Indian Pipes, which are actually a flowering plant without chlorophyll, are common in the Star Lake area. Artist's Bracket, which is the flat wide fungus with a white bottom that grows on trees, usually dead or dying. When the white bottom is marked, perhaps with a little stick, it turns brown, thus allowing words or pictures to be inscribed. They can be preserved for years.
