All Aboard for Mushrooms!

One highlight of the Mendocino Beer, Wine & Mushroom Festival was the Skunk Train ride into the forest--to hunt for mushrooms with a mycologist, and to taste, yes, beer, wine, and mushroom-based dishes from a range of the county's producers and purveyors. The train (formally the California Western Railroad) dates to the 1880s and cruises between Fort Bragg and Willits, over trestles, through tunnels, and past some amazingly old trees. It is indeed a "tourist attraction" but also a glorious way to travel through beautiful Northern California forests. The "Crab & Wine Express" fires up in January.
