Bigger than a bread box

Gorgeous giant mushroomy fungi at the edge of the turtle pond on Rowlett Creek Trail. They reminded me of fragile cave formations, and were larger than the styrofoam cup, water bottle, sports drink bottle, and cans nearby.

Recent rains have floated litter and debris into the nature preserve. Does that account for all the mess?  Can a nature preserve have enough littering visitors to cause this amount of litter?

The beautiful afternoon called me out for nature outlook adjustment. A boost in physical energy did not kick in, sad to say.

Scale--I should have placed a dime or penny atop the mushroom. Only pocket contents were lint balls and cough drops.
