Gaia, the female pitbull was taking me for a walk near a stream while i was attempting berry picking. that was anepic fail. the entire six berries i had managed to get into the ziplock bag were “juiced” as Gaia decided she had wanted to go down this steep hill… NOW. so, along the stream and under the trees traveled, when all of a sudden i had spied three mushrooms i had never seen before. i am most definately not a mushroom hunter and not an expert, but i collected them anyway. i think they were the American Ceaser Mushroom, Amanita caesarea jacksonii but not sure enough to actually eat them. what ever they are, i thought the were pretty.
