Fall in the Cascades

It's that time of year again... The park traffic has slowed and fall colors are starting to show. We've already had snow in the high country.

At Ohanapecosh, that means MUSHROOMS! The berry crop this year was sad - the season, weather and moisture regimes were really not the average. But there has been some really nice Chanterelles found in the lower forests. Most of the ranger folk around me like to hunt for mushrooms, and I've taken many late afternoon walks looking for these prizes. :)
