The above photo was taken by blogge Sven Eberlein, on a recent hike right here in Schroon. Sven, a transplanted German who now calls San Fransisco home, took dozens of stunning mushroom pictures which you can find on his blog. When you see just how many different types of ‘shrooms Sven captured through his lens, your jaw will drop at the simple beauty we are surrounded by in these parts, beauty, we sometimes take for granted. Sven writes:
"On a recent reunion trip to Schroon Lake in Northern New York, my friends and I took a day hike along the northern end of the lake toward Pharaoh Lake. I don’t know if it was just that time of year or if the moist post-hurricane Irene setting had anything to do with it, but within just a few hundred yards from the road we found ourselves in a sea of mushrooms, the likes of which I had never seen before".
