... go see Bedrock John" So, I gathered a good number of mushrooms and took them to show and question Bedrock John about their edibility. He was really nice and quite knowledgable. I had gathered several of the Bolete variety: Lemons, King Whites, and Oranges. He showed me how to check them for bugs/worms and how to slice them up for drying which is what he does.

All packed up and at the car ferry terminal where one of the security questions was "Are you carrying a gun". Sorry what??
Fairly uneventful few hours on the ferry as expected but did see icebergs which had calved from a tidewater glacier on our way to Whittier.
Whittier - a tiny port originally built as a military base where the only way from the rest of ...
