golden chanterelles on the coast Looks good enough to eat, but I’m not familiar with it so I left it. Bears in the area. I also heard elk mewing. Daypack for size reference. Big Douglas fir. One of thousands in area. After several hours searching, I was headed back with a handful of small chanterelles when I decided to check out a place I’d been lucky at before. I was elated to see this large mossy patch with golden chanterelles peeking out. Within ten minutes I had all I needed. The start and finish are at the beach. According to my phone, my mushroom hunt took me 6.1 miles with 1000 feet of elevation gain. I was hungry, so I stopped at the Luna Sea in Yachats and had some clam chowder. That’s about two pounds of golden chanterelles. I made a delicious salmon chanterelle dinner, adding only onion, salt, and pepper. Plenty left over for future epicurean delights.
