    The GF, the little dog and I were riding a fine piece of Colorado mountain meadow singletrack last weekend. Saw a flash of white as we flew past. Looked like someone had lost a soccer ball way out there in the wilderlands. Stopped to check it out. Giant puffball mushroom.

    Wish I knew more about identifying them, as they're supposed to be good eatin'.

    Those last three aren't mushrooms, but a saprophytic plant (ingests dead/decaying materials) that lacks chlorophyll. I believe it's called Indian Pipe regionally, but it might be called something different where you're from.

    There are other plant like that, too. Most of them have disturbing names.

    Great thread. I love mushrooms, too. Here are a couple from a trip to Vancouver. The first two look like Fly Agarics. I have no idea what the third shroom is, but it sure looked interesting. I have a great shot somewhere of an Amanita Virosa that I found in Maine... I will post that later.

    Apparently there are FDA approved courses that you can take to get your license in wild mushroom cultivation or something. Saw it on a Food Channel program. I love mushroom and would really love to eat those out in the woods.

    These are a couple of unusual fungi from the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. We also saw the red starry one in some native bush in Dunedin during a ride - didn't have the camera that time though.

    Anyone have any ideas what they are?

    Neither of these are a fungus. They are both non-photosynthesizing parasitic plants. They lack chlorophyll, which is why they are not green, and must take their energy from another plant. The first picture is Conopholis americana or Squaw Root. The second is Monotropa uniflora or Indian Pipe.

    There ya go. Those 2 you first had tricked me when I first started mushroom hunting. They are quite cool though.

    Well it sure looks like it could get a person high...or at least upchucking. The first two, however, those will get you twisted. Somebody apparently took a nibble...

    I'm not saying it won't get you high, but it definitely doesn't look like psilocybe cubensis (magic mushrooms). Be careful with that ****... even magic mushrooms. I have an awesome case of depersonalization disorder due to eating a quarter of potent cubensis.

    Those sure do look like A. muscaria. They are plentiful in the N. America. Sometimes yellow, sometimes red.

    No clue what it is. The ride to get to it is pretty killer though... not because of the technical terrain (its gravel roads) but more the multiple and not rolling 17% hills.

    Very cool pictures, but eating any wild mushrooms as delicacy or to get high is imo very dangerous. Read about too many people dying every year because they mis-identified some mushrooms.

    the stalk is a flower i think, but the red part looks like some sort of fungus to me.

    edit: good photos deleted due to mtbr posted photo policy. (you post here, they own it).

    you know it's a good night ride when there's an 8 foot tall smiling mushroom in the middle of it....

    I think I got you all beat on size. Taken with my "fabulous" camera phone. Coming up over a boulder I saw this "thing" next to a tree and 1st thought was that of a skull. Lucky it wasn't as I would have shrieked like a little school girl.


    As you can see, someone else got to it before me and parts were broken already. A bit bigger than a basketball!
    Tempting to try a get a taste but I wanted to be able to go home that day. Soft like a marshmallow and cold and slimy with a latex like outer skin.

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    Singlesprocket found an Awesome Laetoporous Sulfurus or "Chicken of the woods", (on the tree).
    Did you eat any of that monster?

    I see lots of Amanita Muscaria, Chanterelles, Boletes, Suillis, and scary looking russelas and Lactarius.

    Killer stuff! No shrooms here yet, its way dry!

    Bood job everybody I'll post some as they sprout!

    Here is a mushroom (or some sort of fungus) from the Ozarks in Missouri. Found it while riding the trail with my dog during a water break.

    now THESE are magic mushies. i find the best way to take 'em is to just eat them where you find them. it's great fun, trippin' in the bush, at one with nature. Bill Hicks has an interesting perspective on 'shrooms. if you're at a party it's hilarious to boil up a big broth and pass a 2Lt bottle of mushie juice around. you can really get the joint jumping with some completely random and interesting results. of course, be really careful with mushies, they're powerful. some people who are predisposed to mental illness should NOT take mushies. their psychological condition could immediately become very acute and they may not recover. like at all, ever. however, imho, they're less harmful than a lot of other chemical enhancements, stimulants, or downers, not only because you really won't want to have them too often (just take my word for it , ok ), but because they are completely natural, the general effect being reflective of this. i wasn't around in the timothy leary days of liquid lsd, but i will recommend mushies over a regular tab of acid any day.

    death camas is natural too, but that doesn't mean you should eat it. not condemning mushrooms, but natural in no way means good for you....

    hey, they're not good for you, let's make that clear: NOT good, physically or psychologically. however, if you wanna trip-out in the forest they can be rather fun, in moderation of course.

    I don't know many of the mushrooms from your area of the world, but the first one is certainly some type of Stinkhorn. Looks similar to Aseröe rubra, but I am not sure that is it. It looks a bit different from what I have seen. The second one may be some sort of Cortinarius, but don't quote me on that. Very cool stuff.

    Very nice. You may be right, but I had trouble showing the scale of that mushroom. It is huge! What you don't know is that the lighter is 2 feet tall.

    From the side.

    Here's a more serious post.
    This is a Cup Fungi, which are quite common in the California Sierra Nevada Mountains. But are often very tiny and easily overlooked.

    Wow, some great photos in here. I usually don't ride with a camera, so I don't have any ride-specific photos. But, I do occasionally pick some edibles. Chicken and hen of the woods, and fortunately our puffballs and giant puffballs don't have any inedible variants.

    Maitakes

    Found these Grifola frondosa yesterday. AKA Maitake, Hen of the Woods, Sheep's Head. Delicious with pasta and fresh tomatoes last night. Many pounds in the freezer also. September and October is the time to find these delicious treats at the base of oak trees.

    I had my first two flower up over the weekend, we've been getting a lot of rain and some cooler temps the last week. Before I thought about this thread and snapped a photo I had already harvested and cooked them up! Next one that flowers I'll try to remember to photograph before eating.

    One was a beaut though.....bigger around than a bread plate!!

    Yep, it sure is a fungus. Some type of Hericium. It's likely a very tasty edible too.
