The secret world of fungi
Along the Rainbow Falls River walk is this trail, it's about 5 minutes walk in. What I liked about this particular spot was the gnarled tree trunks and roots. Who knows how long they've been growing there for or what stories they could tell about what they've seen over the years?
On the outside of one of these trees was some funky thing growing out of the trunk. I'm not 100% sure if it's fungi or some parasitic disease. I still have to narrow that down. I do hope it's a fungi, if we have the latter growing in our native forests then there is a danger that in the future we will have less and less of the things that make NZ special and unique.
I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
