So .... Many .... Mushrooms!!!


Can anyone help me identify this cool mushroom? I think it is a chanterelle. But while I love hunting mushrooms to photograph, identifying them is not my strong suit.

We went walking around Trillium Lake two weekends ago, and I have honestly never seen so many mushrooms in my whole life. So many varieties! I LOVE photographing mushrooms, but wanted to keep under control, so I only photographed the most interesting varieties. I think I have a new favorite ... until I spot another, more unique variety ;)

I only shoot them, so I'm afraid I can't help you out here. But they do say autumn to me.

On thing I know chantarelles are edible. But so long ago I had them, can't remember what they looked like:)

Here from MOM. I knew I had to visit-I'm fascinated by mushrooms-happen to LOVE the edible varieties too :) Don't know what these are but what a pretty shot.

I love the patterns on the underside. Not sure these are cantarelles though.

I bought some in the store recently that look just like these, but I don't have knowledge or experience about eating them in the wild, but I did see this on google about look-a-likes-

They look like chanterelles to me, very prolific this time of year and good eating!!! The gills go down the stem thats what you want. My Dad has been picking a lot of them right now. He dries them, we can them.
