The conditions are great for mushrooms right now, it just rained for 10 days up there.
I'll be at the BAMS/FFSC Pipi foray this weekend. Anyone local should come along, it will be amazing!

I brought it back but it never made it into the pan.

There should be morels at around 5000 feet and boletes at around 3000.

Lassen is very underpicked for morels.

thanks for the tips!

were definitely gonna be keeping our eye out for Morels, and I didnt know boletus was fruiting at this time!
Ill keep an eye out for them as well, and I plan to bring a big pack to pack out lots of fungus if need be.

I finally got more HD space so I dont need to downsize my images, and ill be taking more than usual if things go as planned.

I found a half a grocery bag full at el dorado national forest this weekend. Lots of pins, it will be fruiting next weekend too. They were at about 4000 feet. Also found some butter boletes at 4500.

Ill keep an eye out for them as well, and I plan to bring a big pack to pack out lots of fungus if need be.


Its best to have a real big cooler.

Awesome, I hate it when people do that.

Very nice photos Alan :eusa_clap
By the way do people in US eat Gyromitra esculenta or other gyromitra sp.?
I mean people in here ( North Europe) think that they are very good as edibles, even better than the Morels are.

Some people, some of the species. Most people recommend against them, but others do it all the time. I have heard that Gyromitra montana is as good as morels, I would eat a few but not too many.

Congrats on your finds :loveeyes: those boletes look tasty! I have yet to really try a bolete... I've found tons of edibles and yet ive only tried a small variety of them, im more adventurous these days though, just not Gyromitra adventurous.

We will be bringing a cooler of ice to hold beers/burritos/fish we catch, but I doubt we will be lugging it around the woods with us while we hike for half the day off-trail.

Again thanks for the tips, ill be sure to look for Mushrumps.
