Here are some pictures of the first morels of the season (2012). With the help of Ryan and Surisa, we have pulled out over 15 pounds of morels from one location in the last two days! The morels were found exclusively on south facing slopes.
|Three of us spent about 45 minutes around two fallen trees where we found several clumps of black morels like these.|
|Mutant morel. Two caps, one stem.|
|One of the larger morels we found. 3 inches.|
|Morels are difficult to spot. Get on your knees or belly to find them hiding, like this guy.|
