We made it to Yellowstone Lake where Sicksta Charlene and I looked for mushrooms. We found boletus edulus (porchini) but most were past their prime.mammoth to yellowstone lake car tour_20090903_073Mallard family

"Bored with Yellowstone" ??? Does not compute!

Tranquility said...

What a gorgeous area!

Chris Petrak said...

A friend who spoke at our recent Audubon says his heart is in the west. The East, he says, is picturesque, but the West is sublime. I'm not ready to admit he's right, but your pics certainly help make his case.

Gaelyn said...

Yellowstone is so vast, don't think I could bored with it. Glad you were able to find a few mushrooms. Hope they tasted good.
Where to after Portland?
