the morel of the story is...
Always take the time to go out in the woods the morning after a rainy spring evening.
And, take Mr. Attitude with you. He found 'em.
The Hermit and Mr. Attitude went for a drive this morning, mostly because our Internet server was down and TH could not access his work emails, etc. Amazing how much work depends on the Internet these days. I even spent a good part of my day doing e-correspondence.
The story goes, they drove back roads over to the Wisconsin border, then headed south a ways, checking out some forest roads, and made their way back west. They stopped at a small lake, actually a flowage on a creek created by a century old logging dam. There is a public access on the lake, and they got out to explore and walk a trail alongside the lake.
Mr. Attitude was obviously looking down, noticing things. He went up to The Hermit and said "Look at these neat mushrooms!" Then, a moment later, "Why are you getting so excited, Dad?" Then, "We'll find more. Just look down!"
I have not had morels with dinner in seven years. What a treat!
There's gotta be more out there. Just look down.
