This mushroom only comes out in the Fall. I didn’t find any last year, but I did blog about it back in 2008 at http://visitcranelake.com/blog/?p=330 I think it might be Purple Club Coral.
Earlier in the summer I did find a white version of the Club Coral.
The Nelson’s Trail overlooks a beaver pond and a portion of the pond is bordered with Muskeg swamp. In the Fall, the swamp takes on a colorful glow.
