Mushroom Hunting

Caps Gif

I swear this isn’t going to turn into a boring photo blog of my life.
Here’s a quick drawing to prove it.


Spent Saturday tromping around in the Gorge with Tyler and Erica. Found a crap load of chantrelles after much scrambling and fumbling about in the woods. Mostly took picture of things I couldn’t eat. More Here. Extra points if you can identify them (Tom)!

    That gif is just moving too fast to get an I.D. Just don’t eat ’em. After the chanterelle drawing:

    Golden Spindles – Clavulinopsis fusiformis
    The coral of the forest floor comes in colors from gold to purple.

    Witch’s Butter – Tremella mesenterica
    Just add toast.

    Russula albidula: Every fungi lover’s favorite mushroom author, David Aurora, spitefully calls this the “Boring White Russula.” Better kicked than picked, better stomped than chomped, better trampled than sampled, or better viewed than stewed.

    Western Hemlock cone – Tsuga heterophylla
    These are my favorite cones. Light, crisp, harmless.

    The Seeing Cari – Carimus vanderyachtica
    Most often found in the city (can be seen leaving marks on paper, on bicycles or even attached to computers), but occasionally found in the woods.
