Mushroom hunting

While we were back in DC, meta showed me her Autobon mushroom guide that she had used to go mushroom hunting when she was 12 (yes, she was a dork even in those early years). She brought it back with her so we went with Tom and Steve to try and find some chanterelles (morels are apparently not in season). No luck with the chanterelles, but it was interesting to see how many different types of mushrooms you can see in a small area without seeing the same one twice.

Now that we're back meta is busy identifying the mushrooms and I'm watching Iron Chef: Battle Matsutake, which my TiVo has recommended I watch. Now THAT is technology. Hopefully none of the mushrooms she's identifying are poisonous...

Update: turns out that the mushroom I found is deadly poisonous. Go me.
