The last time I went out was on the 5th.  Found a few lobsters and hand full of chants.  I'm going to go look again on Wednesday or Thursday.

There should be some really nice porcini in the high meadows - boletes.

Can you eat those woolly chants? I seem to recall concerns about them but that has been a long time.

If they are good to eat I will be kicking myself as I found dozens if not hundreds of them up north of Spokane.

The Blues?  They say they are edible, never ate them myself.  Described as mild flavored cross between trumpets and chanterelles.  :dunno:

Wollys - I see, the ones I called whites.  Thinking I may be crossed up.  Woolly's being different than whites.  Woolly = not good to eat.

Found these too.  Looks more like a White...?

@ Mr5x5

I have been seeing a lot of Kings in the Mount Rainier area.  I have only ever harvested matsutake, so I am reluctant to take home anything else (call me a scaredy-cat).  But the Kings look just like those.

I know a bit but I'm no expert!  I don't eat any I find in the field hours from help. lol 
If you can confirm what you are finding are kings then you are golden.  They are pretty easy to identify.  If you decide to keep some be sure to cut the base of the stem and look for bugs.  The cut stem should be pure white without dark dots (bug channels).  Bugs love them.  You can always cut away bad sections.  Kings/Porcini are delicious!  The make cream sauces/stroganoffs extra savory.
