A Few Parting Shots

Well with the season drawing to a close and an upcoming trip looming in a few days it has been all work and no play at least as far as morels are concerned. But I did manage to sneak in a few quick last minute walks through some off the beaten path places over the weekend. So here are a few parting shots for the morel season.

This doesn't mean they aren't out there, they just get harder to find as they get overtaken by weeks of hunters and spring undergrowth. Hit the northern slopes or just head north. The MO/Iowa border should be taking off this week after this last batch of a good soaking rain. So, by all means get out there and find them and feel free to share any photos. I always love seeing some great photos.

I have found enough for me this year and hunted for a little over four weeks which marks a better than average season. I did have to walk a lot and hit many more spots to get my fill compared to the especially bountiful last year.

And chanterelles are only a few weeks away if you know where and when to look. If anyone is interested in a summer hunt, I am planning one for sometime in June. Send me an email or leave a comment and I will be sure to include you when I send out the information.

And now for some last photos....

Thanks for all the work you have done on this blog, the help you've given me and the morel photos!

I cannot wait for the chanties to start coming up...those are one of my favorites.

Let me know when you plan on doing the June foray. I'd love to come.

Are you going to mothball the blog, or keep writing about other subjects?

Oh I usually don't mothball the blog until the dead of winter. I'll try and keep up with it as the summer mushrooms begin. Though not for a while, since I'm out you're way Lisa in sunny southern CA. Heading to Yosemite tomorrow.
