On a trail run yesterday, I found a huge cluster of the most gigantic Pear-Shaped Puffballs (Lycoperdon pyriforme). There were ten or twelve of them growing in the path, probably on some buried wood. Unfortunately I had several miles to go and nothing to carry them in, so I just grabbed one for each hand. Usually these puffballs are only half this size, so this was a nice find, and they were a tasty addition to my dinner. -A. Small
