Hunter – in cases where you want to keep a location secret (totally understandable), please choose more general locations (such as County X, Oregon, USA) rather than choosing highly specific inaccurate locations.

Sorry didn’t wanna come close to telling where my secret old growth rain forest near portland is. These were picked the same day I posted this. Just a few hundred feet below the snow level.

“old growth forest” in the middle of the Portland Adventist Hospital campus. I have been trying to figure out where this was. Seems an odd time to find Hydnum r. as well. Usually find it much later in the year (October-November-December-January).
