Early Morning

Dew bedecked spider webs welcomed the Asheville Volunteer Fungal Department on our last visit to the magnificent Cataloochee transect site. Every trip to the site was its own reward in some way --- a plethora of lichens in the snow, a beautiful little liverwort on a sandy stream bank, a magnificent example of Amanita jacksonii Pomerleau standing atop a road embankment and perfectly lit, and always good fellowship and hard work. My personal thanks to all participants for their time, generosity, and friendship.
