A hike to lower lake two weeks ago was great for spring mushroom sitings and Oplopanax leaf bud collection(our only native of the ginseng family). These little shrooms look to be false morels-Verpa bohemica, safe to eat in small quantities.....I'll pass though.

Gulf coast oysters

I was listening to news this morning, and the topic of oil riddled seafood in the gulf got me thinking about my trip to Norleans this
last February. These half dozen oysters, from Acme, were so good, I ordered another within minutes of consumption. I hope to get a chance to eat them again on my next visit, time will tell us the full damage of what is occurring.
