Bike, candy cap mushrooms in woods yesterday

I’m using my bike to get out in the woods, then parking it and searching for mushrooms (and animal bones). Yesterday found these candy caps. When dried they smell like maple syrup. Also got more of the bobcat bones I’d discovered last week. The bike is so great, with its disc brakes and air shocks.

  1. Great to see you using a Specialized as your fungus forager (Myc-Bike?). As someone involved in retail design at the company, your books have been influential in my life and work.
