Stumbling into Mushroom Season
It should be mushroom season. M. and went out on the 3rd but almost struck out at our old area. We were reduced to just walking down an old logging road/snowmobile trail in the sunshine, looking at wildflowers. It was hell.
Here is a picture of what I think is orange sneezeweed.
Finally, in the middle of a thick aspen/fir grove, I said, "No mushrooms here, too dry," looked down, and there was a medium-size bolete right at my toes. But that was it for the day.
We will try again for 'shrooms tomorrow. Or trout.
