I spotted these mushrooms growing on a dead log as I hiked up the Mt. Wilson trail. I wonder if these are turkey tail mushrooms.
I saw two of these amphibians after I finished hiking. Not sure if this is a frog or a toad. They were slowly hopping on the tarmac of the parking lot well past sunset. I used the flash on my phone to get a clear shot.
There is a concern about its rapid growth in wild areas of southern California.
top sides of leaves are a grass green shade and the underside of leaves are pale green almost white in color. They are fragrant, with a bitter taste.
