Westchester Wilderness Trail, Pound Ridge NY 10/02/05

(Click on each photo to see a larger version of it and commentary).

We had the biggest group of attendees at this wonderful walk led by Roger Willson. Accompanying us was Paul Zoffnass and his wife Renee Ring, tireless founder of this new protected parkland in Northern Westchester County. I visited a different section of the park last week with Roger and Damon and we found some 30 or so species of fungi. On today's walk we found another 60 or so species, which made me ectsatic! And to nourish everyone else's appetite, Matt Merluzzi stopped by to drop off a huge garbage bag full of Laetiporus sulphureus, the Chicken mushroom for everyone to share.
