Yummy, mario mushrooms.
Growing along trail with knob cone pines, and manzanita. Possibly Amanita novinupta? Stains pink.
This caught my attention as it was under a deciduous tree, and all other Amanita muscaria I have seen are associated with conifers.
Was under two different pin oaks in a line of other trees.
Also noted that something was eating the new / small fruits. Wonder if it is an possum.
Found under a conifer, will update when know the type.
