Papa goes hunting

Wow, can you believe it. Me hunting. yes I did. And what a hunting team: Anna and my X. Into the deep forests. Where we allways find the best Mushrooms. It's only a very short ride with car from our Summerhouse. And easy terrain to walk in and pick mushrooms. We thought.
This is what met us, at the entrence to our favourite mushroom forest:

The papermill owners had been there. What at mess. OK-ok - I accept the need for trees to make paper - but to leave the forest in a mess like this? No-no. Vandalisme.
We dropped this part of the forest and went further into the wilderness. Moose, Sphinx, wolves, bears, foxes, birds? Fishes? Mushrooms? Everything is possible here:


At least it looks like an illustration from a Norse Fairytale:

On our way back -we stopped. To give you an idea of the inner bassin of Oslofjord.
East: Dröbak in the background:

North. Oslo is under the hills way back:

Then, the result of our Mushroom adventure:
Surprised? So we were too. Global warming or fake?
I wish you all a wonderful week to come. Mushrooms or not.

Dröbak looks small... *giggles*

Very beautiful view. The mushrooms look very beautiful to, very yellow and big! *giggles*

Have a great week, both of you!

Hugs from both of us :-)

Amazing...mushrooms that look just like bananas...lol! Maybe our bananas would look like mushrooms.

So you went into that forest with wolves, bears and moose...you're a braver man than I am, Gunga Din!

However, the photographs a lovely...you live in a beautiful country, Tor.

Again you gave me a shock ! This time you wrote you are hunting and I just wanted to jump to the ceiling and name you a killer ! but it's only mushrooms that is OK. I mean it's not OK that you didn't find any, but I am not surprised. It must be the global freezing. Too cold and wet ! But you did a lovely walk through the woods looks very nice !
Finding bananas in your woods is also special, lol !

So sad...no mushrooms! Boo Hoo. But you got some gorgeous photos, Tor. Lovely!

Why am I so mixed up! I thought you were supposed to be in Amsterdam this past weekend! Or do I have the wrong month?

What sort of mushrooms were you looking for? We have some very dodgy ones around here.

Not a mushroom in sight. But you did have most excellent company, yes? :-)

It is a shame the paper company must leave the forest in that condition. Very sad.
