I saw this plant while on a hike yesterday. I'm curious if anyone knows what it is or if you've seen one like it? The whole plant is white. Check it out.

OH NO...it's the totally dreaded and highly toxic "Fisherman's Revenge" plant!!! LOL

Dunno, but it's pretty cool.

I'm no expert,but I think it's a mushroom...a very delicate one.

Pick them, dry them, and try them. :D hahaha.

Those things look very cool though. Never seen anything like it.

I found some of those in small old growth forest outside of Newberg. I was in highschool at the time and took them into horticulture class and the teacher had no idea what they were. Strangest plant I've ever seen!

Do remember if they turned black soon after picking them?
