More than 15 enthusiastic folks hiked all the way from the river up to the lookout on Baughman Trail. A few brave ones had fun tasting a few spicy Lactarius species. I was very excited to hold a couple Pseudoboletus parasiticus and a unique cordycep called Tolypocladium ophioglossoides. A beautiful view and a small northern ring-necked snake put a cherry on top of this already incredible day.
