A Magic Mushroom found during a hike in Swedish Lapland

Magic Mushroom

Found this colorful shroom, aka Amanita Muscaria, aka Magic Mushroom, during yesterday’s 15k roundtrip hike between Katterjåkk and Vassijaure in Swedish Lapland. It was some 30 years ago since I was last on that hilly path and I’d forgotten how beautiful it is. There were plenty of mushrooms, in a dozen or so varieties, and no shortage of blueberries along the way. Periodically, it got pretty hot during the walk and I cooled off a little by splashing my face with handfuls of chilly water from one of the many streams I crossed. An amazing experience I can’t recommend enough.
