International/State: Washington
Other Mushrooms: Polypores & Boletes
General Information: At a park on the Kitsap Peninsula found White Cheese Polypore, Zeller's, Blue Staining & Lakes Boletes, along w/a variety of small 'shrooms. Near Steilacoom found many Zeller's of the perfect size to eat, along w/a large grouping of Angel's Wings. Also found the start of a large colony of Chicken Polypores and several groups of Lemon-Yellow Pholiota...all on the same Alder log. Saw many other small 'shrooms, even one type that was growing on an old Doug Fir cone. One last find....three, young, white turkey carcasses that had been there awhile...likely too much for someone to handle in their backyard.

General Information: Spent a few hours up at Mt st Helens this weekend. Planned on bringing home some matsutakes, but a bit early and slim picking. Chantrelles are few and far between as well as boletes. Worms were out in full swing, could have picked well over 200lbs lobsters but happy with 40lbs bug free. Colder weather should put an end to that. Surprised to find 4 hedgehogs this this early. Can't wait for more rain and more chantrelles.

Several of the whites and yellows were huge...running about 5-inches across and 6-inches high. Had to quit on the second trek because our baskets were full. Will go again in a week or so to see what other goodies the forest has to offer.

Other Mushrooms: King boletes, matsutakes, chants, hedgehogs, shrimp russulas
General Information: Over the last three weeks found a few chants, a very few puny hedgehogs, some decent matsutakes, and a fair number of shrimp russulas and kings. Things have been dry, though, and in the past week have only found viable shrooms over 4000 feet (except for the shrimp russulas). Did find one aspen bolete at said altitude, but there were no aspens nearby. On irrigated grass, found good numbers of shaggy manes and a. campestris yesterday in Yakima. Have found a few shaggies in the mountains growing on the shoulders of forest roads, but didn't find them in time. Things have been drying up, but rains are underway again, so I think October will be good.

General Information: Did a half-moon trip around the mountain, stopping at several places to explore for 'shrooms. Kind of slim pickings with all the recent dry weather. However, managed to pick and keep a few Chants and one White King Bolete. Found several Admirable Boletes, but they were wormy. Also discovered a batch of Kurotake and Pear Shaped Puffballs. Also saw Short-stemmed, Comb, and Emetic Russula, along with an old Milky Cap (Delicious or Red-Juice), as well as some other types we've never seen and are uncertain as to identity. Was a fun trip.

Other Mushrooms: Chants & Pollypores
General Information: Found about 1lb of whites & yellows at our 'shroom place after LOTS of hunting in the bushes. Also found a couple of polypores I've not seen before. One I could id is the White Cheese...smelled like a mild cheese. The other is a large and tall stalked polypore (6 inches tall and wide...see pic). Interestingly, hardly any other kind of 'shrooms found...likely due to the hot, dry weather we've been experiencing for some time. However, today we are due for a stint of rain, and will have some for a couple of days maybe. Will check out our place in a couple of days to see what is brought out.
