Found this neat fungi by the Grasse River right off of Miner St. I identified with the help of iNaturalist and really enjoyed the name chicken-of-the-woods, named not for appearance but taste! Who knew!

Beautiful! I've been wanting to try cooking some chicken of the woods. Gotta go find some myself!
