Continuing on Black Mtn Trail Heading Toward The Shelter
Overlook Virtual Pano
Another limited lookout providing a good place to rest, needed especially by the one obviously exhausted hiker (my buddy Joe).  There were a few places where white mushroom-like fungi growing on trees provided contrast to the lush green surroundings. Per my limited research, a few mushrooms that grow on bark are edible, but most are not. Bark mushrooms most often grow in cool, rainy coastal areas and on the shady, north side of trees.

Another LookoutTree Growth

Someone got creative with a chainsaw, which made for a good resting point on the way back.
