On Sunday, Ken and I drove down to Fort Stevens State Park at the mouth of the Columbia River. The ranger led discussion detailed edible and poisonous mushrooms that grow on the coastal ranges and wetlands of Oregon. A large display of mushrooms picked that morning offered a view of the many forms and colors this fungus may take.
The King Boletus, aka Porcini, grows abundantly in the park of you know where to look. Unfortunately I didn't but others had success. Okanagan cyclists Heather and Ashley were kind enough to share two of their clutch with us.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 69'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
