Well defined grow area.

Looks a little lower, too. Wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t a small sinkhole there, allowing for greater moisture or water availability. The Western redcedar is a clue too, I think.

If you ever wish to divulge…..

A more specific location I would greatly appreciate it!


Unsure if they were growing on the leaf litter

I saw a few of these mushrooms in the same area several weeks ago before the leaf litter appeared, so I would venture to guess they are not growing from it. However, I did not get a close enough look. And no, I did not walk on them. Outside of the photographed area, they were quite scattered and it was easy to prevent stepping on them. Thanks for the comments, all!

I hope

You haven’t walk on them but that was a difficult task I think.

so many mushrooms it’s almost scary…
