It was a sparkling fall day, so Samos and I took a walk in the Arboretum. There was a bit of autumn color left, but the predominant theme was green and gray. It was a day to marvel at mushrooms and the oft overlooked beauty of the tree barks – now exposed in all their wondrous variety. We took quite a gander, and walked along the road, along some trails, and along what we thought was a trail, but seemed to actually be an underground stream bed, now coming to life after the recent rains. It was a morass of slime, and very slippery. Several times, I had to squawk loudly and flail my arms about to keep my balance as I felt my feet skidding from under me as I made my way along through the goo. Samos had his camera at the ready, so as to catch a snap of me when I fell into the very muddy morass, but he was disappointed. I was mud to the knees, but managed to keep it that.
Here I am looking like a peasant out for a day of mushrooming!
