Mushroom Walk, August 2003

Walk led and photos by Richard Frenkel

Didn't have much time to take pictures. There were kids along and one of them kept asking me if they could taste the mushrooms! I guess I had than coming since I illustrated how you could tell a bitter Boleteus from an edible one by tasting it. Boletes are general edible and none are deadly, but some other mushrooms can kill with one mouthfull.

The pictures here are offered without captions. Hopefully nobody will be tempted!
