Mushroom Field Trip

Monday, October 8th, 2007

I am taking a Mushroom Identification class at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City.  We went on a field trip Saturday to the Wildwood recreation site on Mt Hood and this is my collection basket.  Some of these are edible and some are not but at this point, I am not all that sure which is which. I saw lots of interesting mushrooms but I expect it will be even more fun when I get to know them on a first name basis.  Meanwhile, I will leave picking and eating to the experts.
