Well finally figured out if Golden Chanterelles grow in my part of Texas....

This is my next door neighbors back yard. Wtf lol.

Arguably one of the best and tastiest of the gourment wild edible mushrooms mere feet away and it might as well be on the moon lol...

Still cool though. Gives me hope I can find some decent patches in my immediate area.

Look forward to meeting at Slingfest 2022.

Last weekend I was on a disc golf & brewery trip with a couple friends.  At the Hasson Park Disc Golf Course in Oil City there was a whole bunch of fungus going on.  Check out this smorgasbord!

I recognize some there Joe. A russula, golden chanterelle, tawny grisette and possibly a very odd shaped gymnopilus on the bottom although i would have to look into that more, could be missing something really obvious. Some of those large gym species will cause you to trip hard. Taste like absolute crap though. Or so I hear.

The brown one could potentially be amanita porphyria or several other species of amanita though it does appear to at least be in the genus amanita.

   Every year these grow in my yard in the late Summer and early Fall.  Are they dangerous to my dogs?

Can we get a view of the gills/stem RM? What kind of tree is it near?

5th picture of Joes has a ring oops. Not a grisette. Very possibly a death cap. Speaking of dangerous for dogs...  Tongue

Ok this is going to be an odd and really specific post... but its something just occurred to me the other day and it reminded me of a test Ive always wanted to try.

So anyways, as a background, the other day I was hunting for new mushroom species and found...*drum roll please* Copelandia Cyanescens, colloquially referred to as Blue Meanies. The reason being they are very ordinary looking beige/grey mushrooms that are actually super potent magic mushrooms. (The active ingredient psilocybin oxidizes blue as they age)

Unfortunately I forgot to get pics.  Cry

Heres some from the net.

...


...

(Look at all that bluing. A handful of those tiny mushrooms and you would forget you exist for a few hours.)

This got me thinking of a very odd thing about mushroom trips that some may not know. This is that when many people take mushrooms they actually see mushroom visuals all over the place. Like neon or flashing wavy mushrooms everywhere you look even when you close your eyes.

So my question is...what causes this? Why would a chemical cause you to see mushrooms like that? The obvious answer is because you know youve taken them.

Heres the catch, when I was taking them years ago I never knew this was a normal thing until reading others had the same experience. Its not like you see little blotter papers when taking LSD so I dont think this is just a psychedelic thing.

So heres the test I would love to run. Do a randomized trial where some people are given magic mushrooms in pill form so they dont know they are taking them and then see if they still see them.

The fascinating thing about this (to me) is this idea that a chemical has the ability to make you see a specific image. I dont understand how that works.
