Spring Foraging - Miner's Lettuce!

On a 14 mi loop around Briones Reservoir, I saw a few mushrooms (a couple candy caps!) and observed piles and piles of Miner's lettuce.  Miner's lettuce is high in vitamin C - and it's pretty tasty.  This Miner's lettuce was unusually big - I'm more accustomed to seeing it around the size of a fifty-cent piece.
