We are headed to long beach this weekend.  Anybody know of any areas anywhere near there to try?  Just looking for something to do with the family and we will be there for a week.  I haven't been out in a loooong time, used to go as a kid quite a bit near Wenatchee but the old areas where we used to go are all very different or there is no longer access.

My son had a bad experience with them a couple years ago.....thus the lack of morel hunting on my part.  He had been eating them with no problems.....then the last time he had them he had an upset stomach, nausea and vomiting.  Makes it hard to get excited to pick them after that.  I have never had a reaction....my wife and daughter don't like them.....thus no morels for our family.  Super bummed......it was one of the activities that made me look forward to spring.  :bash: :bash:

If you ever come through Yakima area during that time of year I will hook you up if I have them. I'm still gonna look for them. I had a moment when I realized the "relationship" might be over and I got sad. Then I realized they just don't taste the same anymore and I felt better Ha haaa.

By the way nice hauls everyone!

Found a decent patch in a burn in the Okanogan this weekend, 4600 elevation. It was a nice warm day after a big rain. :tup: :tup:

May there have been a false morel or two in there?  I know several people who have had varying bad experiences with them.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Not seeing any cauliflower shrooms there??  Look like corals to me.  Be careful out there!

Def not cauliflowers. I agree that they are corals.

If you are not willing to die for freedom then take the word out of your vocabulary.

Wife and I scrapped together a nice haul this weekend. At about 3500’ feet but right along the banks of a creek. Have about 3/4 of them in the dehydrator now.

With the lingering winter snows and lots of spring rain this year for morel mushrooms will be one for the record books and not to even mention looking in all the burn areas.

To still be finding good clean morels under 4000’ this late in the year is not common.  I’ve picked for 2 hours in the last week and ended up with 15lbs

You do know of coarse its illegal to drink and pick mushrooms at the same time. The BAL is a lot less also.
