Wet And Woodsy

Today I stopped to take some pictures at a rest area in Wolf Creek, Oregon and got this little mushroom cluster. The ground was saturated, squishing under each step I took. The leaves of everything were wet and the air smelled like pine.

Usually we see snow at this time of year up here but the only snow has been on the higher elevation mountains, the rest of our route seems to have just gotten rain, which is better for us, since that means Ed doesn't have to put on the snow chains.

Driving through here makes me have fleeting thoughts about building a log cabin in the woods and become all outdoorsy. Not that I would ever do anything remotely outdoorsy, which is why it's a fleeting thought, but the smell of the pine and the visual lushness is enough to send me there.

I can smell it now even with the temp about 8 degrees outside.

Glad to hear you have some decent driving weather! You need our friend Michelle, from Calabria, to teach you how to pick the right shrooms.
