A sunny weekend of hunting.....
    #3273072 - 10/24/04 10:45 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hey guys...hope you PNW people enjoyed the amazing weekend! So beautiful and sunny!

I found around 7 pounds of Chanterelles at my property yesterday. BIG ones...and in beautiful condition. Found a grove of Amanitas on the trip back home and took a few shots just 'cause they're so so so beautiful!



A dozen or so at verying stages.



Growing on the side of the road in grass and gravel.



Today I came across ONE...single Agaricus Augustus. Couldn't upload the pic though cause I used my space. Have to wait until tomorrow.

Also found what I believe are a family of Boletes Edulis. I'm not aware of what else would grow to be so tall and large in the Bolete family other than the species Edulis. (Pic tomorrow)

I also found a new variety that I have never seen before. Looks like a jelly fish body. Very cool! Very beautiful. Had to really downsioze it sao I could post it tonight. Didn't want to wait.



Is that not a cool mushroom!!!????? Haven't had the time to research it yet. If anyone knows what it might be let me know!

7cm cap
8-10 cm height
somewhat viscid
VERY crunchy meat.
Broke apart when I put it in the bag to ID.
No spore print yet.

Anypoo...

Found TWO NEW PATCHES today. One was very prolific! At first I almost discounted it. Picked a couple shrooms...gave them a squeeze and didn't see the blue so thought I made a mistake. (but in my head I KNEW they were Cyans) Anyway...kept the two and took them to my car to go try somewhere else. Before I sat them down I smelled them. They sure SMELLED exactly like Cyans. YOu know the smell of a Cyan if you've smelled one.

Drove around a block...and looked at them again. Sure enough...BLUE! Went back to the spot and started picking.....and picking .....and picking. It was pretty funny. Just when I thought I'd reached the end of the patch I saw more. Too many to fit on my four dryer trays this time.

Of course I took pics so I wouldn't look too suspicious. I'll have to wait until tomorrow before I can upload those as well.

Then I found another new spot that yeilded okay. I think it will improve with time. Got the sense it was a fairly young site.

MAN! Once you learn to ID them...you see them everywhere...even one or two only at a time!

Anyway...wish I could share my pics...but no space. Tomorrow I'll get them uploaded and posted.

Hope you all did well with your hunts!

Great finds there! Hopefully someone can ID the last one; I've never seen one like it.

Ha! Ravioli! THAT'S what it looks like! Great description!

Anyone ever see them before????? It was a loner!

Crazy...and amazingly cool to me!

Saw so many Amanitas today. Not sure if anyone would use them. I'm not going to indulge at this 'juncture' but I'll save them if anyone would use them.

Yes, for sure.
It was a beautiful weekend to go hunting.
A nice little dry spell after a wet business week.

Didn't get my shoes quite so wet this time :wink:

Any ideas on what the Ravioli could be????

The spores were a very pale cinnamon color.
