Sunday was one of those perfect days where the weather turns out to be even nicer than expected and plans turn out to be even better than expected. A day of mushroom foraging (even though we didn't find any mushrooms - we found plenty of other natural treasures), great meals and great company!
We went on two different trails in an attempt to find some mushrooms with Ry's new Mushroom Guide I got him for Christmas this year. Instead we found new flowers - we found out what Coltfoot was and how you can make cough syrup or lozenges from it. We found a garter snake, insects, an old rusty 7up can, a slug and heard grouse in the distance (see the bird guide above to see what a grouse looks like). Back in town I found a bunch of discount bolo cord (hence the bolo cord moustache on Alex). A nice lunch, coffee and nougat and then back home to rest up for the next big family/friends meal. sigh... good day.
