Sept 7th, Rodger's Park, Benton County.

We had nice weather to greet us at Rodger's Park near Vinton. It had been somewhat dry for the previous few weeks, but we found a decent amount of fungi.

We found the common orange Mycena leaiana in several locations. These show the radial lines more than most.

Only one log had the Bear Paw mushroom, but they were nice and fresh.

There was a lot of White Pine Boletes under the white pines, but most were quite dry

After the foray, Sarah is examining a large mushroom.
