Gathered Some...

Birch bark today from a snag in my Grandpa's woods.

Growing on the snag were about a dozen of these shrooms:

Some friends tell me that the shrooms could be either tinder fungus, birch polypore, or razor strop fungus which can be used as a strop compound, or a plaster for cuts. The birch bark is great stuff, it's got natural combustible oils in it that touch off really easily, even when wet.
