Bear's Head Edible?

Took a drive to Cathedral Grove today hoping that the "touristy types" had retreated for the season so we could spend some time looking for mushrooms.  We were right on time.  There were only 3 other vehicles in the parking lot and not a sound of a critter under 20 years of age ...  Heaven!  Must be getting old as the sound of children's voices is like a thousand fingernails screeching on a blackboard.  We hadn't walked far when we came across our first Herecium abietis (Bear's Head) which was really quite small.  This second one took quite a bit longer to find but it was worth the wait.  They really resemble icy frozen waterfalls.  Finally a chance to taste one.  If this is my last post then you know the damn thing killed me ...

Hopefully --- To be Continued ....
