Great weather for this walk up the Camp Guysuta valley. The Halloween decorations were just starting to appear – ready for the Haunted Trail. Mushrooms are now starting to fruit again after the recent rains broke the dry spell. We found a number of gilled species not just polypores and ascomycetes.
