He did a great job, but there was a little more to the day than just mushrooms.
We woke to find another beautiful day staring us in the face and we were faced with a dilemma. Laundry and house work or adventure. Seriously, is that a real decision?
Today's schoolwork, kids, is an examination of the geological and botanical features of the northern California coast in winter. Note please, if you will, the evidence of erosion presented in Fig. A.
|Fig. it out.|
|Fig. I'm done with this bit.|
Yeah, it went just like that.
Once we arrived at Salt Point State park, the education and exploration began in earnest. The Sonoma County Mycological Society has meetups and mushroom forays here, so we figured we should check it out. We certainly understand now why they do. There were mushrooms everywhere.
|Free maps. Now with bugs!|
|Found this intriguing specimen|
|Partial veil is transparent. like cellophane.|
|A big old cup of NOPE!|
|Oh yeah, it was pretty there.|
|One of our favorite finds of the day, black trumpets.|
|Another favorite find, a cool tree circle.|
|The view up was cool.|
|Max said he was fishing. Yup...fishing.|
|Not bad, but too much belly.|
|Better, but not quite right.|
|There, now it's beautiful.|
Then, there was nothing left but to drive home. Laundry will still be there tomorrow.
