2016 Alaska Foray Field Report

Ted showing off a Alaskan gold

First of all, before going Noah Seigel was saying it was going to be a banner year for mushrooms in Alaska.   They had been gettting plenty of rain this year.   Last year, it was a drought year and the rivers were low.  I was getting excited and checking the weather of Soldotna months before the trip.   My palms were sweating.

This will be my fourth consecutive trip now and I am an Alaskan fixture at Bill Whites Sports Lodge...

2016 Alaska (by Attending FFSC Members)

2016 Alaska Foray again provided fun adventures for all of us who were lucky enough to go.   Bill and Jerry White were gracious hosts and the Alaskan weather gods smiled favorably upon us.   Mushroom and adventures abound.  Wish you were there to enjoy them with us.
