This was the largest of a series of patches of a white and cream growth, soft and moist, with pink spots in the thicker areas. Fungus? Slime mold? I don't know.

|White and green powders|
Many of the stumps and trees along the Canyonview Trail are covered with a fine white or green powder, spreading itself sometimes over the whole stump. In the photo above, it's even growing on the spider webs. Another one I can't identify.
On a small, broken twig lying on the ground, I found these white mushrooms growing:
|Top view. Fanning out from a side stalk. The moss shows the size.|
|And the view from underneath. The curve at the left is my thumb.|
