More mushrooms

We went out chanterelle picking again on Sunday and found quite a few more than last time, probably due to the increasing wet weather we've been having. We came back with some very large and quite tastey specimens, as well as winter chanterelles and a few cat's tongues. We also saw a coastal Giant Salamander who was pretty cool, some very tiny frogs, and a lot of stunning looking fungus.

The largest terrestrial salamander in North America. Neotenic larvae may grow to almost 14 inches (35 cm.) Large robust body with massive head, and stout limbs. Tail flattened from side to side. Dark brown to near black ground coloring above overlaid with light brown spotting or fine-grained marbling.
