Mushroom Photo Gallery

At some point, I started taking photos of mushrooms when I saw them around the area, and have now become very excited to find new species. It’s like an easter egg hunt… and you never know what you might find. I have no idea how many species are native to the area.

Montezuma/Cabuya has a mushroom expert living here, Dennis Church, who used to grow them professionally for food in Vermont.

If anyone can identify these species, let me know and I’ll credit you on the website. And feel free to send me your mushroom photos, as long as they are something better or different than what I already have online here. Thanks!
