Last Foray of the Season — October 4th Bemidji State Park

final foray 2015We had a great final foray October 4th at Bemidji State park.

Pictured are Anita Linberger, Kae Bergeson, Paula Peters and Sheila Capistran.

The changing leaves were beautiful and the weather perfect for mushroom foraging.

Michael Blassey and Catherine McGoldrick started a fire in fireplace in the Dining hall for us as they were camping there along with new members Ray Holm and Sandy Sonja .
They scouted out he area and directed us to some fine picking!

20 people participated and we found a nice variety, quite a few edibles as well including Suillus cavipe and Suillus spraguei, Cantharellus tubaeformis and Craterellus fallax.

We spent an hour and a half tromping through the woods then came back to the dining hall and enjoyed an impressive pot luck full of succulent dishes of every variety.

We mushroom foragers definitely know how to cook!

Sad to see the season end.
