Memories

"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.
