  10. Copper Sunsation April 18, 2010

My own personal favorite came in at #9, “A Moose and Her Calf”.  I was standing at my kitchen window early one morning last March and I saw the moose standing at the end of my driveway.  I dashed for my camera and by the time I got back with it, she had moved into the back yard, and it was then that I saw that she was accompanied by her calf.  Since my deck is well above the level of the yard, I was able to stand on the deck and take video of them without disturbing them.  It was a wonderful moment for me and I’m so glad I was able to capture it.


Video: Exploring Summit County’s mushrooms

Get to know some of the high country’s fascinating fungi

SUMMIT COUNTY — Summer rains have helped underground fungi send up their spore-bearing fruit, or mushrooms, as we commonly call them. In some moist forests, there are huge clumps of fragrant, edible chanterelles, while near treeline, giant porcini and poisonous amanitas grow profusely. Watch the short video to learn about the ecology of some of the fungi growing on the slopes of the Tenmile Range, near Breckenridge, and click on this link to see all the rest of our mushroom stories, including several slide shows and photo galleries.

Also, this coming weekend, many of the country’s top mushroom experts will be in Colorado for the 50th annual foray of the North American Mycological Association. Get more information here.
