"Busted" (by )

It was 25 years ago in May that I joined a foray to Yosemite led by David Arora.  We camped at the Sweetwater campground on Hwy. 120 outside the park.  I was new to FFSC then and didn’t know anyone, but feel that there must have been a club member or two on the trip.  David says there were about twenty of us in total but sadly I have no photos of the foray and can’t remember the people.   The first day we hunted the Nat. forest off Evergreen road  and found morels.  I remember being very proud of a prime 3” specimen.  David found some Amanita velosa and cooked them up for us to taste that evening.  He told us they were some of the best-tasting mushrooms and, of course, added the obligatory warning about eating amanitas that we weren’t absolutely sure of.

"Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may." - Plato

Marshall Field Natural Reserve Foray Report (by )

Soggy Hunters braving the weather
Over 30 foragers braved the weather last Saturday 1/16/2016 for the FFSC foray at Marshall Field – what a great and enthusiastic group of folks!  Thank you to everyone who attended; all of your input, questions, and helping hands made it a fun outing indeed, and thanks to Justin Pierce and Shane Marsh for helping with identification.
 
Although soggy, there was a fair selection of fleshy fungi to be observed...
