"The eyes have it." For some reason, I can easily spot BTs.
Emetic Russula
Redwood forests are home to many colorful mushrooms.
Caution! When feeling threatened, the California Newt
secretes a deadly poison through their skin.
Be sure to wash your hands thoroughy after handing one.

and miles to go before I sleep... and miles to go before I sleep. - W. Whitman
