Fall River Mushrooms

Say I never did post anything from our visit to Fall River, did I? Fall River is one of those small cities in America that has seen better times. It's not without it's charm, but is not the tourist destination fishing town that it once was and could be again. Anyway, I found some mushrooms, including these boletes.

And nearby, this Amanita. These are both mycorrhizal mushrooms, meaning that they are produced by a fungal networks that are symbiotic with the plants in the area. The only plants in the area was a small group of eastern white pines. I don't often see mushrooms symbiotic with pine,(usually it's oaks) so this was kind of exciting for me.

That first mushroom absolutely looks like a couch cushion. How wide across was it?

Six inches maybe?
