Come on, Baby… Myco-Safari…

…more like a foray than a safari, honestly…

Tucson had a particularly productive Monsoon Season, this year, but there’s nothing but desiccation in the forecast.

So, today we take to the hill (Mt. Lemmon) for what will likely be the last Savage Fungus Hunt of the season!

We picked up the scent of the myco-fauna at the base of Ski Valley.

It didn’t take long to flush our quarry!

…Fruit of the mycelium, you will be ours this day!

My god we're sneaky...
  • - Hey, how'd the audition go? 
- Eh... I thought I nailed it, but they gave the part to a poriforate in suspenders. Go figure. 
- Ah well... Don't sweat it. I think you would have gotten tired of that big pink echinoderm right quick.
