Truffles, 13 miles NW, 1000ft elevation

Riley-in-the-duff Kate, Riley and I drove up onto the Forest Park ridge looking for Oregon White Truffles. This was only my second successful foray. Along the trail I spotted a small stand of young Doug Fir. There was a thin, even layer of duff which prevented any vegetation from growing. Finding the truffles was as easy as scraping back the duff. In the dim light the white truffles glowed like gold.
