I live in the Pacific Northwest (southwest Washington state, to be exact) and just recently got into mushroom hunting and tripping. Well... I would be more into them if I could just find a few of the damned things! I haven't recieved my mushroom identification guide that I ordered yet, so I don't know if I can even find any mushrooms at this time of year in my area. And no, I'm not dumb enough to eat the couple I have found without first thoroughly researching and identifying them.
I've spent the last few days researching online at night and out in the field during the day (and I am TIRED! ). I've hiked through every forested area, field, and park around me but, the only place I've found any shrooms of any kind are on my and my neighbors' lawns. I have great respect for this activity, which is why I decided to learn the hunting and identification methods myself instead of relying on others. I'm just very new and am looking for any help I can get. All comments or suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Thanks!
Besides, if there are no active mushrooms growing at this time, at least I'll have plenty of time to study up!
