16-pound mushroom: The kind of find that earns Mushroom of the Week honors

Resized/Sun-Times

Fall mushrooms, including a 16-pounder.

Corey Fox found these south of Chicago last week before the brutal cold snaps.

“Big one was 16 pounds,” he messaged.

Big enough to take Mushroom of the Week honors.

MOTW, the celebration of mushrooms and their stories around Chicago outdoors, runs as warranted on the Sun-Times’ outdoors page. I’m thinking this might be the last for the fall.
