Flagstaff August Part Two
My goal of posting while on the road didn’t happen as planned so here I am trying to post everything before the end of the month. In other words…in one day! So here is part two featuring fungi from my other favorite trails. They are (in no particular order) the Kachina Trail, Viet Springs Trail, Aspen Corner area and the Nordic Center. Another favorite is the trail at the Flagstaff Arboretum but there was very little there this time.
All these trails are forested and are generally very wet which, of course, is what you want to look for when searching for fungi. Following is a sampling from each area but first, here is one I forgot to post along with my other Inner Basin trail findings. CLICK HERE for a fun little video showing the Puffball spewing out spores.
My most exciting find was on the Kachina trail where I spotted a Cauliflower Fungi (below). I had just learned about it and knew it was edible and couldn’t be confused with anything so I collected it; took it back to the RV and cooked it! It was delicious 🙂 CLICK HERE for a video.
