And they're not the mushrooms I'm used to, from the Bella Coola or the Lower Fraser valleys. Of 20 some-odd different species I found, I recognized two, a yellow witches' butter (edible), and an amanita (not). I'll be digging through mushroom books and the web for a few days, trying to identify the others.
|Witches butter on an old, burnt stump, with cladonia lichens and mosses.|
|Amanita, probably muscaria.|
|Generic 'shroom. These are hard to identify, because they're so similar to many others.|
|Really strange mushrooms. The cap seems to be melting, but I didn't see any completely deliquesced ones. And the stems are all twisty. These were growing in semi-tame land; beside the road at the Park entrance.|
|Very tiny, tall mushroom. The evergreen needles give an idea of the size.|
More tomorrow, after I've done my homework.
