The Great Mushroom Cook-out
By Heather Harbord, 15 October 2012.
Dave Taylor from Texada had been asked to lead this but at the last minute declined saying there were no mushrooms. Eight of us went to Squirrel Crossing anyway and found about 20 species.
Despite a recent injury, Izi Loveluck led the trip as she knew far more than the rest of us. Claudia Boelcke brought the huge remains of a 10 lb cauliflower mushroom which she found up Scout Mountain a few days before. Andrew Bryant brought cooking gear and we ate the very tasty cauliflower as well as some chanterelles that we found. This was just as well as the trip stretched into four hours instead of the usual two.
