I went to the Mushroom Foray this past weekend, held in Terra Nova Park this year... and the shrooms seemed to be fairly scarce... any that I did find were being feasted on heavily by the nasty slugs!
I got to go via boat to a spot where the group that I was in forayed out into the wilderness to look for abundance and types of mushrooms... bald eagles, leaping slamon, spruce grouse, beautiful forests... great day! I only found 6 mushrooms, but that seemed to be about the highest number for our group anyway... enough to put into my grandfather's basket in anycase.
Yesterday, we found more mushrooms on our little waterfall trail than I did at the park...
...even some beautiful chanterelles that were fried in butter with garlic and put on toast... yum!
