King Bolete found in Washington State! (PICS)
    #2901071 - 07/18/04 12:00 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

It's about dang time, I found one...





Here are a couple habitat shots.






It's been a very dry summer in the northwest, other than this bolete, it was slim pickins for shrooms. It was still a fun day, getting out and playing in the mountains is always excellent.

Peace.

The mountain in photo #4 is indeed Mount Rainier,  a dormant volcano for now. 

And yes, I only found 1.  I searched the surrounding area and didn't find anything.  This mushroom was completely solo.  I almost felt guilty about picking it after the fact. 

But alas, dinner is going to be prized tonight.

another extremely dry summer just north of you in BC as well, I don't even bother looking anymore because there is hardly anything to be found. it's depressing.

Absolutely stunning views you have there. I'll have to go there before I die.

nice find man, I was up in the cascades a few days ago but it looked too dry and I ended up stuck in traffic for 2 hours cause of a wreck on top of the pass so I didn't bother doing any hunting.

were you up around the chinook pass area (highway 410)?

nice find. i was looking for this same mushroom the last couple days when we were hiking. but no luck--we were probably too high up in elevation, there was still snow!

Here's some pics from our hike, up near Mt. Baker - I love living in this area.





Peace -@cro

You got it. The trailhead was about 6 miles from 410. I found the bolete at around 5000 feet. Cooked it up last night. These are very rich tasting mushrooms. They go great with steak.

strange... @cro and I were up at about this elevation, maybe a tad higher... maybe we were too far north, it was rather chilly at night.

it was beautiful hiking and scenery nonetheless :sun:

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Stymee, great score. I picked up on parts of Rainier before.

@Cro, excellent photos. Glad to see you made it tot he mountains, but sorry about the trafic. Here in Bangkok it sucks. I may not go to Angkor Wat.

Want to come home early to discuss some legal matters. and also I have work to do at Chula so I may pot some cultivation images in a few days,.

Am sending specimens of P. angkoria to guzman for comparitive taxonomic study between P. samuiensis and P. mexicana, and P. semilanceata.

Colleced hundreds of P. samuiensis but still have many problems witht his camera. Went to Dusit Zoo yesterday. Took about one hundred pictures or more and they all came out blurred, at least mot.

mj''see you guys laer int he next month.
