Eldorado National Forest

Every year as the snows melt and the ground warms, some very delicious mushrooms coax their way up through the ground.  One of those is the coveted morel, others include  Spring King boletes, and often Coccoras.  This year's weather and snow pack has every indication that we will have a very successful foray.  Current FFSC members who are logged in on the website can get the location and date in the Members-only information  to follow.

Although soggy, there was a fair selection of fleshy fungi to be observed...

Another fun FFSC Holiday Potluck! Lots of food and friends, and we had so much fun socializing we forgot to take pictures, even of the food. Thanks to Justin for taking these photos for us! If you have pictures don't hesitate to send them to me (Kitty) and I will be happy to add them to our jolly gang here.   

Hope to see you next year.
