It will very likely be raining. But if we're off the top of the ridges, there's some nice forest places. So we'll go up high. I have a couple of loops in mind that could be quite entertaining. It might be a little too late to find mushrooms because of cold, but we'll see. There will certainly be enough rain for it. And be prepared for fungal, forest fun.

If we do find mushrooms, we'll stop long enough so people can get a reasonable amount. Not giant bags.

Things to bring:

-BE PREPARED at this time of year any weather is possible! Especially clouds and rain.
- snacks/food
- warm layers
- RAIN GEAR! suntan lotion etc.
- sturdy hiking boots
- decent pack

Meetup Points:

We will meet outside of Five Star Burgers across from Albertson's at DeVargas Mall and try to be back before 2:30. If you're running late or have have question please call Dave at[masked]

      Ya. For the coral one, I'm drying it first. I figured too much energy to roast it, so I'll find a recipe online for dried one.

    Had to cancel, Dave. I have to go out of town on FEMA flood business.

    Hi Dave, I'm thinking of joining you next Sunday, but since this is my first time with the group, could you tell me more about where we will be hiking?

    Looking forward.... Juan Oliver
