What we’ll do

Discover one of Colorado’s best kept culinary secrets - wild edible mushrooms! Enjoy an alpine hike above 10,500ft as we learn about the magic and mystique of these fungal forest dwellers. We will meet in Aspen at 2:30pm then drive guests to a secret location within an hour. During the drive we will discuss the basics of local mushrooms and their ecology.
