Weird. Cool to see them so far out of their usual season.

Assuming you found these in a one acre area and that there are 104,772,900.3 acres in California…We are looking at 9.5 parts per billion of total land area.

If I was finding boletes in August that is about as specific as I would be as well. Great finds BTW! If your looking for more, South Lake Tahoe is kicking them out in large quantities as I write this.

porcini on the other side of the tunnel in August??!
now that’s what I call an unseasonably cool summer!
