June to September is mushroom season in Lashihai. We went hunting for mushrooms up in the hills behind ZhiyunSi, the nearby Tibetan temple.
Xuemei and YangYaoyin filled up their baskets with various species. They spotted a cluster called Ji Zhuazi ("chicken's claw") growing off the side of a ledge. It has a funny shape and texture- kind of looks like chickens' feet!
