Saturday’s foray, 10/29/16

Seventeen diehard mushroomers showed up braving the huge raindrops Saturday. They are truly true ‘Washitonians’; my kind of foragers. 😃 Nope, I did not miscount, several left early.

nope, not a Lactarius rubidus or candy cap. Candy cap caps are not sticky, slimy, or shiny which these were, and L. rubidus also releases white milk liquid when caps are cut which these do not.
