Preservation Way

2.16 miles, 2 mph; tiverton, ri

finally got a chance to walk the trails behind my brother’s house in tiverton, ri. they’re really nice, and i’m very jealous that they have such a great resource right outside their door. there were tons and tons of mushrooms, too. HUGE ones… dinner plate sized ones. there were lots of boletes and milkcaps and russulas. i wish i knew more about how to identify them, because some varieties of boletes and milkcaps are choice edibles. it would be great to come back with a real mushroom expert.

ugh, this photo came out awful, because the iPhone was set to “auto-HDR,” a setting which, if you’re not patient, results in a terrible two-toned photo. but anyway, i know it is a milkcap, because of this second photo.

see the milky sap coming from the stem?

since this hike is entirely on private property, i have not added it to the hikefinder.
