Deep In The Forests Of North Carolina, There’s A Magical Fungus That Glows In The Dark
North Carolina’s many forests and preserves make it a seamless effort to be in awe of nature and all that we encounter when exploring the deepest recesses of the Tar Heel State on foot. And while that’s a task that’s best enjoyed during the daylight hours, there’s a hidden secret to discover along those same paths after dark.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
If you’ve ever explored a campground or a trail after dark, have you encountered any glow-in-the-dark fungus? We’d love to know!
