Morels Found: 0
False Morels: 0
Other Mushrooms: 2 pounds white chanterelles, 2
General Information: Found over Labor Day weekend while camping. Actually left about a pound of chantys in the ground. I didn't have my field guide, and haven't seen chanterelles for years - and never whites, so, not being sure of what I had and lacking time, I only picked enough for a couple of meals. Was happy to have expended the effort once I got home and IDed them for sure. Tasty. Boletes weren't bad - slightly lemony - but not as good as kings.
