Thanks for info that this is not a slime mold. I've changed it's category to fungus.

I believe I found the ID for our spottings, check it out and let me know what you think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHTtEDxaB.... The video is kind of interesting, they give the scientific name in the title.

Very cool, Jean!

I don't know what this slime mold was growing on - at first I thought it was a clump of dog hair but then realized it was some kind of mold.

Thanks Maria! Looking for slime molds, mushrooms, and new plants has really added interest to my hiking.
