Friday Fungus...purrrrrrple

Still too wet and wintry to have Friday Flora, but the fungi are loving life.  Here's another fine specimen from a few weeks ago, sighted along the North Umpqua Trail:

Probably Cortinarius violaceus.  About 4-7 cm across, and a deep purple color that just doesn't photograph well in the murky gloom of a thick cedar forest.
