    I am getting the itch to start looking for morels here in the northwest. ( thats what I miss about the midwest. Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois were good shroom hunting. I usually go to a national forest up by the White Pass in Washington but I will be in Utah over memorial day so looks like I will have to hunt them down somewhere in Utah

    2 weeks ago was the end of them in this part of Virginia. Pretty good year.

    Never understood why some area is really good and another close by that seems identical is no good....Always find them in the same places.

    I remember when the elm disease killed all the elms in Indiana. We slaughtered the big yellows around those trees for several years. The season usually gets going around mothers day and we have had a lot of rain and some warm weather so it will be good.

    Been finding some in Ohio, a lot of spikes this year. Found some spikes, greys and nice yellows on Saturday. Spikes old but edible and sponges pretty nice and fresh. They all ate very well for Sunday dinner with aspargus, grilled pork chops, fresh lettuce and onions out of garden. Yummy !!

    Have you ever had the small yellow ones, the are a different type of morel but are much smaller and more rare. They are great if you roll them in flower and fry them, man i love em. They bring a pretty penny too.

    I have had almost every shape and color. Any yellow is good. The greys are best, yellows second and the blacks are good but last in my book. People here in the northwest only know the blacks
