97°F on the Rogue Valley floor. Much cooler in the Cascades. Time to go morel hunting before they disappear for another year.
Another good foray! Tuesday found me trekking the step slopes of the southern Cascade mountains in search of the black morel mushroom of the Rogue Valley area. Wintery weather of cold rain and high winds persisted throughout the hunt.
The first of the mountain black morels are found on May 11, 2017. Let the treks into the high Cascades begin. To see more see the Morels 2017 page:

Time to visit the Cascade Mountains for black morels!
Morels 2017 tab updated with more photos from the Easter Sunday morel foray. Quite a successful hunt, with the first of the nice wild asparagus found.
