Wayne greets us at Adams Fork Campground.
My new bike on the left, my old one on the right. (Now Eric's.)
Nice central set-up!
Dave brought a grill (!) on his Guzzi hack, and cooked up a mess of fine ribs.

Ah, there's one peakin' up.
It's a Russela. (I think.)

Eva, Wayne and Eric look over the haul.
...and more chantrelles...
Does it get any better?
Another random mushroom.

Olallie Lake. Super nice campground here, with a place to put in a canoe.
An idyllic spot.
Wayne with the King of the Boletes!
"Perhaps the most perfect Bolete I have ever found!"
This mushroom was incredibly dense. Probably weighed 2.5 lbs!

That's a glacier, maam.
The lovely Liko helping Wayne prepare the mushroom soup.
A heavenly concoction. Seriously the best mushroom soup I have ever eaten.
