Wow, that is big. So many interesting things to see and I think we see more with a camera in hand.

Great close-up. They are said to be eatable - I haven't tried...

I don't know much of anything about mushrooms except some will kill you if you eat them. So I don't eat them.

I think your photos of these are impressive.

Barb: Very neat shots of the shelf fungi in the tree. I don't think they are edible.

Hi Barb,
I'm originally from Lancaster County, PA, so know your area fairly well. These are some frilly mushrooms! You must have had some good moisture this summer.

Your crafting blog looks like it could be good fun.

I see the same mushroom through my dining room window growing on my neighbor's maple tree. The mushroom is Polyporus squamosus or Dryad's saddle. Listed as edible in many mushroom field guides including the Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms. The caution is that only the young fruiting bodies and/or tender cap margins are suitable for eating. On the other hand, even though this is a pretty easily identifiable and distinct mushroom, it is never advisable to eat any wild mushroom based on a photo or an internet recommendation.
