Around 24 enthusiastic people came out in freezing temperatures. The usual fall amber jelly and crowded parchment were seen. Although there were some surprises. John Plischke III found Chroogomphus with white pine (which was exciting for me (Sarah Banach) because I can dye fabric a pink/red with them.) John Plischke III, Adam Haritan, Jared White and Sarah Banach identified the mushrooms. Species list entered by Sarah Banach.
