Hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc – Swiss Mushrooms

Travel - mushroom in Switzerland

There is a section of the Tour du Mont Blanc hiking trail in Switzerland where there are signs with information about edible/poisonous mushrooms in the woods.  And, indeed, we saw some mushrooms on this section!  Too bad we didn’t have cooking facilities to harvest and enjoy any of the edibles.  I can’t imagine something like this in the U.S. because of the liability.  One mistake here and you are a goner!  But, if you are knowledgeable like my neighbor Shirley, you can have a treasure trove of delectable eats right from your own forest hike!  I am trying to learn her vast mushroom knowledge.  This is definitely a specialty art/science that is mostly lost in today’s world.  Years ago, though, the forest provided a bounty to those with eyes to see!
