I asked about this specimen, and was told C. subalbidus is common on the east-side of the Cascade Mountains, but infrequent on the west side. That explains why I’ve only seen it near Timothy Lake. In my opinion, a much better eating chanterelle than C. formosus: much more meaty and less likely to be parasitized by other fungi.
