What a great place and age to be exposed to the wonders of Nature. Wish I had started decades ago looking at fungi. I was a birder for many years and then did vascular plants for a long time also. Did not “see” my first fungus until I was a bit over age 70. Seeing that one (Phlebia radiata), and I was hooked. Love the Western U.S. and now know that Windsor Trail is the place to be when the conditions are good. Hope you get an opportunity to get there soon. Looking forward to seeing any posts from the area. I WILL get back there next year. Wish it were not so far from St. Louis, but worth the effort to go.

just off of Hyde Park Road, and my first mushroom hunt (at age 15) was along the upper Windsor as it meets the ski basin, hunting for B. rubriceps with a Russian friend and neighbor in the days before anyone else knew or cared they were up there (and before they had their own name). I’m looking to return there for a visit sometime in the next month or so, depending on rain, assorted east coast obligations and ticket prices.

Are you from New Mexico? Have been to Sandia Crest a number of times and love the area. But nothing compares to the Santa Fe Ski Basin – Windsor Trail. It is mushroom heaven.

nice to see some familiar fungi

from my childhood backyard(s). Apparently the boletes and chanterelles are already going off. Is it true?
