I can’t get to this place enough
Great Basin National Park. And the drive there is killer. I mean that literally and figuratively, as there are few landscapes so clearly able and ready to kill. To me, only salt flats exceed it that way. I love them both, of course.
Me and David Arora are going to have a little chat, human-to-book about all the fungus (see below). And next outing, even if he doesn’t feel like coming along and I don’t really feel like carrying him, he will be wrestled into the backpack anyway. If needed, he will bump the birding guides, or at least the heavy one. In case you prefer a clearer opinion, yes, that is my very favorite mushroom book. And I have read or consulted more mushroom books than one might expect, being still pretty useless when it comes to mushroom collecting.
