Throughout the forests of the Pacific Northwest, mushrooms of innumerable types can be found. Many are poisonous so take care in choosing the right ones. Among the best known are Matustakes, King Porcinis and Chanterelles. Each has its own season, its own weather pattern and its own elevation. Finding them can add to the enjoyment of the hike.
