Road trip attraction: mushroom foraging

Mushrooms2smallFoodie alert! The Four Seasons Resort in Vail, Colorado, has found a new way to entertain and educate its guests and town residents: mushroom foraging. The luxury resort offers a luxury outing, called Mushrooms & Mercedes. For $200 a person, a guide leads guests into the woods, teaches them what to look for and sorts through the mushrooms they pick. The price includes transportation in Mercedes SUVs, lunch, and a mushroom-themed dinner. Two outings remain this summer, but nearly every slot has sold out this first season. The resort plans to offer Mushrooms & Mercedes again next year. Read the full story here.
