Because of the lack of fungi found lately near home at our altitude, we decided to go down to around 2500 ft. elevation.
We drove to the first river crossing and walked around a parking spot just below a bridge. We didn't find much there except part of an old Butter Bolete.
We continued back toward the highway, stopping at each of the campgrounds, and after much walking, saw lots of different species, a few new to me. Along the way we found and picked a batch of wild grapes. They were probably too old for much of a taste. The oyster mushrooms were the only edible mushrooms we brought home with us.
The Boletus erythropus was a first for me, as well as a very distinctive, unidentified Suillus.
Any help in identifying the mushrooms or correcting the names, would be appreciated.
It was a beautiful drive, a pleasant lunch at the local restaurant, and in all, a great day to be out in the woods.
