My wife is a mushroom nut. She's gotten me hooked.

She was out yesterday and didn't find anything in an area that last year yielded a decent amount.

I am amazed that the early season drought would effect the mushrooms this late in the season, as it seems that the rain-sun-rain-sun cycle for the past few weeks would be pretty good for waking up the spores.

We will probably go looking for some middle of next week to see what we can find...

Dan -

If you're in Idaho Springs then there should be good spots on Guanella Pass - somewhere around 9000 - 10500 feet is where they should be showing up now. The postings on the local board tell me that the season has started late but it's going strong now.

We found good numbers off Peak to Peak Hwy last Satruday.

Do you like eating them too, or just picking them 'for sport'.. My wife loves picking them but won't touch 'em with a barge pole... hehe.

Also, we went up the Middle St. Vrain trail starting at Camp Dick. At the end of that trail there was still good 5mi to the Beaver Res. I now see on the map that there is a more direct route to Beaver Res via Co Rd 96 right off the P2P Hwy - if you've been on it - how is that section?

Default Cr96

CR96 is a flat, graded dirt road in superior condition.

Once you get to the trailhead, the trail up to the water crossing is tame with a couple very minor spots where you should think about tire placement. There are lots of big and deep puddles, and some of the trail is a little tight. (I had my neighbor with me last time in his New to him 2011 taco. he was concerned with some pinstriping, but didn't get any)

Umm... eating them is the only reason to pick them?

I'd leave them if you aren't gonna much on 'em. I feel like it'd be a waste to not eat them.

they taste buttery. delicious.

Oh, my mom and I love them, but my wife and daughter don't. We always keep some.

Interesting. Kate was out on Guanella yesterday. Skunked.

We're off to Argentine right now to go looking...
