Mushroom Hunt

We spent a few happy hours in the woods, scrambling over fallen trees and scooting amongst alder scrub.
With our field guide in hand we sampled fungi from a couple of areas. Lo and behold, we found a few edibles! Most interesting was the shaggy mane. We found a perfect eating specimen as well as a couple that were starting to consume themselves. When they do that the result is an exuded liquid that makes excellent ink
