Mycological Field Trip - Report
Other than a recent light dusting, elevations below 7900 ft
are snow-free. It was pretty cold and windy, and we were still encountering
frozen mud and patches of ice in the late morning.
There's still a good amount of snow at the Tree Spring Trailhead. This
area (and above) could produce some snowbank fungi during the next 2-3
There is moderate flow in the area's streams--no raging torrents.

Field Trip visited two locations.
We first hiked a variation of the
Bill Spring Loop. We then drove to
Tree Spring Trailhead, where we spent about 30 minutes.
This trip was pretty unproductive--just the usual polypores and a few
things frozen over from last year.
4 Abert's squirrels and 100 decibels worth of Steller's Jays.
David & Terri Wallis
and Seamus the wonder dog.
