Hello!:tounge_out: The other day, I mentioned in another thread that I was going on a treasure hunt, and that in a few days, I would show them what I meant. Well, this is that thread. I grew up hunting, and eating morel mushrooms...mostly hunting lol. I've always held some fascination with all types of mushrooms. I think they are strange, and cool. It's been wet and cool lately, and that makes for lots of fungus growing! This year, I decided to set out in search of the golden chantrell. They say they are delicious, but I don't know anyone personally who harvests them for food. I did find some, but I was still reluctant to eat a "new" wild mushroom, so I didn't bring them home. There is really only one look-alike for the chantrell that is inedible, and the worst that could happen if I ate the wrong one would be a mild gastrointestinal disturbance, not a fatal poisoning. I know the difference between the two, so early next week, I plan to try these mushrooms out for the first time. Along the way, I found that there were tons of very photogenic mushrooms growing all around, so I captured them on my memory card to share with you. I will include several here, but I invite you to visit my profile where there is an album full of more mushrooms if you liked these. These first two are chantrells. They can be buff colored, yellow, or orange. These were more orange than they appear in the photos. These ones are an inedible look-alike.
