Mushrooms at British Camp

I am just reveling in this early October sunshine we've been having; I know it won't be long until we return to the wet grayness that is normally associated with a Pacific Northwest autumn! Looking out the window it could almost pass for summer out there with the bright blue skies, but if you look closer there are signs of fall everywhere. The leaves are beginning to change and drop off the trees. The sun is setting much earlier. Many of our small woodland birds are starting to hang out in large mixed flocks rather than in their spring and summer nesting pairs. And down on the ground, all sorts of fall mushrooms are beginning to emerge.

Here are a selection of the species I saw on a hike yesterday at British Camp. I haven't had time to sit down with the field guide yet so they remain unknown to me, but maybe one of you will recognize what type of mushroom some of these are. If you do, please leave a comment!

Great images. I'm always amazed at the variety of mushrooms.
