Lots of these purple beautys on the trail the other day. Thanks for the ID.

I don't think these are Amethyst Deceivers. The first pic shows the stems are bulbous towards the base and in the second two pics, if you look closely, you can see the rust colour at the top of the stem (Amethyst Deceivers have white spores).
I would guess a Webcap, like Cortinarius violaceus, if you look very closely at the second pic, I think there may even be some veil (web) remnants visible?
Great cache bearattack79,congrats and thanks for sharing
hmmm I know I would like that trail. Beautiful spotting!
So vibrant! These must have been fresh. Lots on the trail.
Welcome to Project Noah, bearattack79. These beautiful purple mushrooms put me in mind of Alice in Wonderland.
Thanks for the help with this purple mystery mushroom.
may be indigo milk cap (Lactarius indigo)
Beautiful, hope someone can identify
