A couple of hikers
at the top of
the mountain


The big Mushroom we saw was a Leccinum

Same people eat these mushrooms;
however, there are many reports of people getting violently sink from Leccinum
My suggestion: Do not eat them

Note: Leccinum is a genus of fungi in the family Boletaceae.
It is not in the genus Boletus. It is a seperate genus in the family Boletaceae

We also saw lots of Wooly Chanterelles
(Turbinellus floccosus) Aparently some people eat
these mushrooms, but there are lots of reports of people
getting sick from these mushrooms. My suggestion: Do not eat them
