The other day I went for a hike on the trails near Mt. Finlayson and Jakle's lagoon, and as I walked downhill through the woods I couldn't believe how many mushrooms lined the trail. It was almost like something out of a dream, as there were so many of them in all shapes and sizes. I counted easily over 30 species of mushroom, and have been back several times since then with my camera. Here is just a small sampling of what I've seen there....
|Black elfin saddle, Helvella lacunosa|
|Probably candy cap, Lactarius spp.|
|One of my favorites. Never seen anything like it before - does anyone have any identification ideas?|
|Shaggy mane, Coprinus comatus|
