Here are a couple mushrooms we encountered way back in the fall of 2014, when the Earth could still sustain life…

oldmanofwoodssunny
Old Man of The Woods. Ate it.

reishi
A reishi, showin’ off. I made some tea out of this. I do not to my knowledge have cancer now so who knows, maybe the new-age rumors are true.

lactariusmilk
A cool Lactarius. I didn’t eat this one because my ID on this genus is not up to snuff yet (although i have a hunch this one was a piperatus, which is considered “semi-edible” — nice but not exactly a term to get the mouth watering. But the milk tastes really hot-peppery!
