Mushroom Festival (Travel + Leisure)
Photographs of the annual Telluride Mushroom Festival in western Colorado. "Food, nature, or drugs. Everyone who comes likes at least one of those." is how it was explained to me by an avid attendee. I learned how to forage for chanterelles, a gift I am so grateful to have received.
