    The forum description indicates that sharing is okay in here.

    So here goes, the link is under my signature line. Most photos are from the Oregon coast.

    Last summer, I started reading about mushrooms and started to pay attention to the enormous abundance of different fungi.

    Also, I learned to ID a few edibles - chanterelle, violet cort, admirable bolete, oyster mushroom.

    Just happened to find a few last chanterelles yesterday.

    If the image attached right, that's violet cort (used flash; it's real color is a bit darker)

    I got into mushroom hunting about 10 years ago when I had major reconstructive surgery on my hand and couldn't really get much exercise. I started taking little walks in the woods for fresh air and realized that mushroom hunting was something I could do with myself while I recuperated. It's a wonderful hobby and as long as you do your research thoroughly, very rewarding and tasty!!

    Remember.. there are old mushroom hunters, there are bold mushroom hunters, but there are no old, bold mushroom hunters ;)
