Joshua Tree

IMG_7174-20091127On a recent trip to Joshua Tree NP we saw only a few fungi, some beautiful lichens. I also took a picture of this grass (right) which in a funny way, resembles a zygomycete sporangia. We will have to return when the rains come for the wildflower show and seek out the palm oases in the park where there is a better chance of finding fungi in the desert.IMG_7212-20091127
