Steady rain greeted us for our final scheduled foray of 2017. We met at the nature center for Poweshiek County at Diamond Lake near Montezuma. The radar showed us that the rain would eventually let up, so, while we waited, Mike gave a talk on mushrooms. Thanks Mike for having a "plan B". Finally, we couldn't wait any more and headed into the woods. It was still raining, but not too hard. We decided to walk to the Fox Forest, just across from the nature center. Here we see Emily, her daughter, and Roger dressed appropriately for the conditions.

We found lots of Tree Ears and other jelly fungi, along with plenty of small puffballs.

After the foray, we went back to the nature center for a pot luck lunch. We had these great people on the foray along with Glen, Roger, Patti, and Mike.
