More from the mushroom front

By Peninsula Daily News staff

GATHERING MUSHROOMS FOR food and fabric dyes is a Pacific Northwest tradition going back thousands of years.

But it's also a risky venture if gatherers aren't educated in mushroom identification.

A good way to learn about mushrooms is to attend the 2013 Olympic Peninsula Mycological Society Wild Mushroom Show from noon to 4 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Sequim Elks Lodge, 143 Port Williams Road, in Sequim.

We wrote about the ins and outs of mushroom hunting last week in "It's mushroom-picking time on the North Olympic Peninsula,"

The article featured photos from Beau and Bobbi Billeaudeaux of Brinnon, veteran mushroom hunters.

Beau emailed us a new photo (at right) Sunday:

"Here the lobster, prince and chantrelle . . . reach out in colorful glory!" wrote Beau.

"I just had to show off! What pleasure . . . from the hunt to the meal!"
