What does the term “foxfire” bring to mind… an old series of books about Appalachian culture (or the movie based on them)? A real estate company? A campground? Or do you recognize it as the term for the eerie yet awesome greenish blue glow that certain fungi produce?

Wait… what?! Glow in the dark mushrooms?

Yes, really. And you can find them (and their magical “fairy fire”) right here in West Virginia.

Have you ever witnessed this magical sight? What time of year and where did you see it?
