Frozen Waterfall?

   A trip last fall to Cathedral Grove which is located on the Port Alberni highway resulted in the find of the year for me.  It was the first time I had seen a Hericium abietis (common name Bears Head) outside the pages of a mushroom identification book.  My picking partner and I had crawled over the fences that lined the main walk and headed off into the surrounding bush.  I know ...  one should always stay on the marked paths but that day we wanted to check out greener pastures.  We had only walked about 100 yards when I spotted this little specimen.  If it had only been a bit larger I would have taken it as these are supposed to be delicious. 
Next time a little butter, salt, pepper .....
