Elk Island National Park


Toadstools at Elk Island National Park, Canada

I was looking through my Alberta pictures and found these toadstool and wild mushroom photos. These were taken on a hike on a peaceful sunny day in September at Elk Island National Park. The park is about a half hour drive east of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

I don't know the names of any of these toadstools, as I know nothing about mushroom identification. I was just surprised to find such a variety. You can't take or pick anything from a Canadian National Park, and I am not suggesting that these, or any wild mushrooms, would be good for eating.  But wow, look closely and there is so much to see.
