Wild Mushroom Foraging tour – Vancouver

Wild Mushroom Foraging tour – Vancouver

This was one of the coolest Christmas presents from last year. Marc’s brother bought us a wild mushroom foraging tour from Swallow Tail Tours.

The walk involves a hike out to an impressively large cedar tree, then on to Kennedy falls, which is gorgeous! This hike is very easy to…
