Seen during a very overcast day alongside a wide trail in the Pack Forest. Found next to a creek that appeared to be new from the recent heavy rainfall. The area mostly consists of deciduous trees, with thick understory. The ground has a thick covering of leaves, twigs and other materials. The mushroom looks very shriveled, reminding me of a brain.
