Retired Mountain Man, who has keen eyesight, is usually the one to spot the first mushroom of the year. Not this year. Yay! I found the first one. (Retired Mountain Man says I'm a showoff.)
We hiked down the trail to the bench to check his game cameras and then we walked back up the shale pit road. It has been four or five years since I have been able to go on the hike. We threw branches and broken limbs off of the trail as we went.
We found these on the bench in the clearing right next to where one of the game cameras is located
I am adding a few photos from our first day of fishing too. The perch aren't biting yet, but it has to happen soon.
We will be having fried mushrooms for dinner tonight. Yum.
