    Back in my days as a wilderness ranger we would see those coral colored shrooms with the gold dots sprinkled across the top , usually in Aug. Occasionally you would see one with part of the top piece obviously missing, most likely deer or possibly from squirrels taking a bite. Often, you would find smaller, dried mushrooms hanging in lower branches of trees, placed there I assume, by squirrels. Rural legend, those shrooms would give you a psychedelic high if you ate one. No one I knew tried it. Once, a group of partiers ate mushrooms and it became a chore checking in on them two or three times a day until they recovered, they were sick puppies. Don’t know if they ate local shrooms or they brought them with them.

    1. Look but don’t touch! Or at least don’t eat if you don’t know what you’re doing because in this case what you don’t know can hurt you.
