Hunting…for mushrooms

I’m always in awe of what amazing mushrooms the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  Shopping at Pikes Place Market always yields such cool wild mushrooms like the hedgehogs we found last month.

We just signed up to become members of the Puget Sound Mycological Society but unfortunately their April class has completely filled up.  After shooting off an email out asking to get put on the waitlist I got great news back that they are hoping to open up a MAY class - fingers crossed that we’ll be able to get registered for that class as soon as it opens!

In the meantime, I guess I’ll just have to take a look at the recommended reading list and figure out if we can make it out for some of the field trips!

A mushroom walks in to a bar. The bartender abruptly tells the mushroom, "Hey, we don't serve your kind here!" The mushroom replies "Why? I'm a fun guy!"
