I'm moving to the desert soon, so I decided to spend one of my last free days in my damp Pacific Northwest back yard in my favorite forest. I breathed in as much fresh air and verdant green as I could, and said goodbye to the flora and fauna I've come to know and love so well.
I feel utterly clueless when it comes to identifying mushrooms. I need to begin learning the names of the ones I photograph, but if you have any insight on what these are in the meantime, I'd appreciate it. Here are a few snapshots from my day.
