First of the season

Chaterelles that is.

Yesterday Russell and I went out for what is really our second mushroom foray of the fall season. Target: Chanterelles. We went out last weekend, and while we found buttons, none of them were big enough to harvest.

Yesterday we grabbed our friends Jason and Egan and headed for the Cascades. We hit several spots without finding anything, then, paydirt. Our first pound of chanterelles of the season.

I forgot to take pictures unfortunately, but here's one from Russell. At our chanterelle site we looked up and there, just hanging out and watching the four of us, was this big owl. Pretty neat
