East side-of the state

where we live(Yakima, WA), is actually really close to some of the best and most pristine fungi hot spots in WA, in my opinion. Highway 12 is a good bet between Morton and Yakima.

Either way,

I feel like this year has already been very good without any rain- By the time you head up here next month things will be in full swing for sure ;)

We are planning on being at the Seattle NAMA foray next month, but I fear that it is on the wrong (dry) side of the state!

My fingers are crossed for some great fungi. I already know that there will be lots of great folks there.

Sorry to hear that the crispy effect is state wide throughout Cal right now… I don’t think all creatures are destitute yet without water- nature always finds a way regardless of our impact. I do think you should plan a trip North to Washington or B.C. (if your season down there is a bust) we always seem to have something fun to come across in this region.

Hope next year you guys get some fantastic snowpack- then we can all see another one of those shoulder wide, massive B.edulis pics from AmanitaRita again!!!

yes, we generally see our matsies later in the season, assuming that we even have a season here. sigh.

oh yes, pretty much all of CA right now is crispy dry and/or on fire, other than the extreme NW, which is currently producing commercial amounts of lobster mushrooms and chanterelles. They are more on the PNW schedule, though.

Almost zero snowpack in the mountains this past year. Things are grim all over for mushroomers, as well as other life-forms that depend upon water. Gosh, that would be everything and everyone, huh?

Right on-
