Sandia Field Trip Report
Submitted by Mark
Saturday morning, 8 May dawned cool and breezy. Jim and Mary Young joined me
for a spring mushroom hike. Although Linda Zobrist and Rich
Therrien had a
conflicting appointment, they joined us for a cup of coffee before Jim,
Mary, their dogs Dusty and Mia, and I shoved off from Doc Long picnic area.
We hiked for a couple of miles up trails on the east side of the Sandias,
and happened upon numerous spring mushrooms. Dusty, the older pup, hung
with us, and he seemed glad upon our return to the vehicles.
One reason I
enjoy mushroom hunts is that they are like a treasure hunt. Although
sometimes the hunting is better than the finding, on this day we found some
treasure. It was a great morning and we had a fine time; perhaps the high
winds in Albuquerque on Friday night and Saturday morning prevented more
NMMS members from joining us.
