Great morning hike with my cousin. Fungi galore!
Hiked to the top of Elephant Mountain with great views
then down into the bay leaf tree lined valley with a creek
babbling through it. Perfect conditions for mushroom growth.
A long time ago I came to farm camp here at Hidden Villa
and won the award for least disposable lunch.
I brought the whole lunch wrapped in a bandana on a stick,
hobo style. Probably not very politically correct.
At farm camp we learned about "velcro plants", printing ferns, lanolin.
The smells of Hidden Villa remain the same:
Bay leaves, compost, and sheep...a delicious combination.
