Cool Winds That Blow Down

Per Mr. Hosh: Perfect specimen of the "Destroying Angel" (Amanita bisporigera) the most toxic mushroom in North America. Found on a mountain trail last Saturday morning in Kings Gap State Park, PA.

First thing this morning, I dropped Pete's socks and undershirts into the washing machine so he could hang them out on the clothesline. I don't know why a poison mushroom made me think of that.
