Actually Crazy Dog Lady went for a bike ride but found some cool looking mushrooms along the way.
I think Mushroom #1 on the right is a King Bolete.
A better view
Mushroom #2 on the left has a slimy cap when wet and stained my fingers brown/orange when I touched the bottom of the cap. I think it might be a Matte Jack or maybe also a King Bolete.
Any mushroom aficianados out there want to offer an opinion? Because I'll totally put my life in the hands of some stranger on the internet. I also need to figure out how to cook them if they are edible. My mushroom book says King Boletes are 'one of the most sought after of all the mushrooms, delectable fresh or dried,' so that's what I hope they are. No way Jonny will eat them so I'll have them all to myself. Maybe I'll put a photo on Facebook, someone's bound to know what they are.
I picked more mushrooms than these but when I got them back to the car Jonny pointed out the maggots in them and they didn't get to come home with me.
Oh and we also had a nice bike ride with some friends. The wildflowers were spectacular.
My legs hurt from the DOCNA trial yesterday. I'll write more about that tomorrow but in short it was fun and we had some nice runs with little things here and there as per usual. Still I managed to climb a lot of stuff I had to walk a few weeks ago. It was too short of a ride, an hour 20 minutes or so, but I'm stiff and sore now so maybe it was just as well we cut it short.
