2013 OMS Hocking Hills Summer mini-foray

by Alan McClelland

This past Saturday, I lead my first solo foray for OMS. Ten of us gathered to find fungi within the Hocking Hills region. I scouted out the areas the previous night at my typical spots to make sure we were not wasting time in the woods for Saturday’s foray. This did not end up being the case though, as I did find a diversity of species up in the Cedar Falls and Old Man’s Cave regions during my two hour trek. So this made the next day for us a lot easier for us and gave me more time to get to know everyone. Half of the group enjoyed taking photos along the way and the others enjoyed just being in forest and taking it all in as it was a beautiful day to be out!

Most of the photos in the overview were taken the previous evening in the same areas we visited Saturday, while the others were taken the next day along the way on the Cedar Falls and Old Man’s Cave trails. The last nine photos of this foray series were taken by members Hugh Urban, Candace Black and new mycophiles Kimberly & BrianTerrill. All of which did an amazing job capturing some excellent finds! Special thanks to Hugh Urban for helping with taxonomy, info and the species list.
