Agaricus of some sort, all this late in the summer were teeming with maggots when you cut into the base.
Found about 5 lbs of fresh, quality specimens of these lobster mushrooms. Dried what I couldn't eat that night. Such beautiful color in these mushies.
Cute little gilled mushroom growing out of a crack in rotten doug-fir trunk.
After a resupply in a small town in the mountains, I got a ride back to the trail from a friendly chap who shared his secret chanterelle spot on the way up.
The haul. These Colorado chanterelles were tiny, each about the size of a walnut. They were incredibly tasty, much better than the giant ones I find in California in my opinion. Cooked them into our ramen that night
Some beautiful thistles I would often see along the trail in the drier ecosystems.
A Monarch butterfly at about 12,000 feet elevation on a mountain pass.
Honestly there weren't that many mushrooms this late in the summer, even up at those elevations. I missed the biggest flushes by several weeks. There were, however, a plethora of beautiful vistas the whole 500 miles.
