Special Issue, October 6 and 8, 2010
At 5200 ft.
By Herman Brown, Greenville, CA



October 6 | October 8

On October 6 and 8,  we went up to about 5200 ft. and found lots of different species again.

On the 6th, the first mushrooms we found a few Boletus edulis.

The other mushrooms at that spot included a rosette of Phaeolus schweinitzii and some Boletus edulis.

We the went to a campground near the lake, and found more edulis, plus the usual bunch  of various Russulas.

On the Buck's Lake loop trail at the north end of the lake, we saw lots more mushrooms than the last time we were there just a week ago, including more B. edulis, Gastoboletus, Ramaria, Ganoderma, Russula, Chroogomphus, Suillus, Albatrellus, and a few other Boletes.

Below are several of the pictures taken:
