  1. Nice mushrooms! Was there a fire in that area? Posted 9 days ago
    1. Thanks! Don't think so - yet. I mean not this year. My "headline" is a bit misleading. These mushrooms are in one of the east of the Cascades areas that is fire-adapted and has always burned fairly regularly, on something like 50-100 year cycles. That is all changing now of course as fires grow hotter and more frequent. I was thinking a lot about fire; and having previously trained as a headline writer, it's hard to get away from that sort of story telling. Posted 6 days ago
  2. Ohh, fantastic find! I haven't found any morels in the past couple years. Posted 8 days ago
  3. Thanks Christine. I love this image. Plus the little orange-gilled Dermocybe there for extra credit. Posted 6 days ago
