Lulu and the Giant Mushrooms

Lulu and I are finally home from our three weeks away.  I will be posting pics taken throughout our travels.

The first leg of our trip took us to Bonnyville, AB. to visit Barry.  On the way, Lulu and I stopped at Vilna, AB to see the World's Largest Mushrooms.

We had tried to visit them earlier this year but the street was flooded and muddy and we couldn't get near them.

This time we made it and Lulu enjoyed picking at the grass that grew between the paving stones.

It was a very small park and the grass was covered with dandelions, which do not interest Lulu in the slightest.

The mushrooms were not a big thrill for Lulu, but she doesn't eat them in real life either so naturally she ignored these.

Lulu was more interested in checking out the lawn and looking for bugs. 

I thought the mushrooms looked kind of neat for a photo-op but Lulu was done and wanted to be on her way.

The mushrooms represent the tricholoma uspale mushroom that grows wild in the area and is either dried or cooked by local mushroom hunters.
