Sometimes you just can not let go. I had to catch that third summer steelhead. This day on the Rogue River of Oregon I wished I had called it quits early. Ignoring the brooding, building clouds, I got to experience first hand one intense and scary thunder with lightening storm.
A good haul of the mountain black morels and a few yellow jumbo morels.
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.
Rogue Guiden with largest black morel find of the day.
Yes, they are starting to pop in the high Cascade Mountains. Here’s the first four black morels that I found along an old logging road.
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!
