Celebrating with Shrooms

On the one-year anniversary of the inception of DIBS, creators Cristina and Larissa ventured deep into the forest … at night … with no firewood and survived (due to the kindness of a friend, of course - Thanks Alicia)! They took a daytime hike near Raymondskill Falls in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, where they rap about life, love, the earth, and human nature.

The gems they stumbled upon in the past year are well represented by the fungus Cristina captured growing in the late summer undergrowth. Props to Sarah Prentice who provided insight into the magical mycological finds and helped with ID-ing them.

The year ahead sure has more mystery in store.

Enjoy!
