A friend and I went hiking up the Rattlesnake this past weekend. We found loads of Suillus Cavipes mushrooms up there (edible mushrooms), some past there prime, but a lot of them just coming up and really great looking. Just thought I'd share.

Suillus Cavipes Do you know tha lay name for it??

Yummy! we just ate a huge Puffball last week during that sunny spell.

You gotta love the puffer , easy to identify & so yummy!

Morels are good too & easy to spot.

Is there any other kid of mushroom in our area that is easy to identify & yummy to eat??

So according to google common names for Suillus Cavipes are: Douglas Fir Suillus, Hollow foot, hollow-stalked larch suillus, hollow stem Tamarack Jack.

Yeah, I only know the Latin name and my friend only knows the Czech name...not much help there.


Does anyone know where to find other mushrooms?

I know there is a large bed of the non-poisonous Coral Mushrooms in the shady cleft on the north side of McDonald lake in The Missions, but I've always been nervous about eating them since the similar mushrooms are so poisonous.  I do know folks who eat them though & they are still living.

Also I know there are puffballs in the open area along the canals on Pistol Creek Ridge south of Mission but the trick is catching them at the right time.

I am morel dysfunctional.  I can look and I see nothing - and then others will spot a dozen in the same spot.
