The white chantries flew, I guess… They’ve been known to do that when you’re only looking for matsutake all morning.

I always think of different forest types and riparian variances, even elevation drops in ravines, as canopies. They look, smell and feel different. That’s just how I’ve always separated sections of forest-by canopy.

Hope to see a less green Daniel-with a huge basket o Matsie buttons in the next few weeks!

Good luck down there this season!

Congratulations, Drew!

Nice going. (I’m going green with envy down here.)

One question, though. How did the Cantharellus get into the canopy? I always find them on the ground…;)
