July 3rd, Ryerson Woods State Preserve, in Iowa City, Johnson County, Iowa.

Ryerson Woods has a history of delivering a bounty of mushrooms, and our July 3rd foray was no exception. We have not had any rain for about a week, so we were worried it would be too dry. The woods, however, has enough leaf litter that moisture was not a problem. The weather was warm but not too hot, so conditions were near perfect. Here are a majority of the foray participants:

We found some mushrooms growing from the ground, like Chanterelles and the common red Bolete, but most of the fungus was found on decaying logs. Here are two mushrooms that don't mind sharing an old log:

We found plenty of white jelly along with some clear jelly.

Here is a photo of the table where we tried to identify what had been found:
