I took a mushroom hunting hike going up the Rhus Ridge trail off of Moody road. Near the top of the trail where it connects to the Black Mountain Trail, I saw this bedraggled fungi. Not much for style but it is huge, being at least 2 feet across. A record size for me. Unbelievable.
Then on Saturday 12/8, I ventured on several sections of the Skyline to Sea Trail off of Highway 236 (Big Basin Way)
An aaa size mushroom ;=)
I am not sure what this is but it is noteworthy, pretty. It was right on the trail, hiding in plain sight.
The following shroom was in Huddart, a San Mateo County Park 12/9
On the Limekiln Trail off of Lexington Reservoir 12/14
A tiny fully functional mushroom, the little white dot !
There was a small leaf that I picked off of the mushroom on the left, observe the pure white spot that was under it.
