    Those are beautiful! Nice find.

    Where is Goldvein? We have a Goldbond in Giles Co.

    Found these today outside of Charlottesville, VA. This warm weather and rain should give us a great week to be hunting.

    Wow. That’s like one of those how many mushrooms do you see pics. I think I saw 13? Found a few blacks in Powhatan yesterday and one yellow
    This weekend will probably be as good as it gets for Powhatan this year

    Went today after work; found 2 nice greys low on the hill, 2 half morels, and quite a few small/medium ones a bit higher up.
    Hoping the rain coming up the next few days will bring some good sized ones.
    Brought enough home to make some mini pizza's!
    (also found an old sprite bottle and an odd shaped brown bottle, soaking the dirt out of them now haha)

    That is awesome.. Wow.
    I can't seem to get my wife to want to get in the woods with me (only recently got her baiting her own hook! haha).

    I'm likely near you guys, so hopefully I can find my way into something similar, my jaw would be hanging hard. I'm in Bedford but the hills I'm on don't look that green yet; should I be trying to get on top (1000-1500') or more down in the valley/creek areas? Mostly poplar around.

    Edit: I see maybe not as much luck today Percy. You try a different spot or just hit/miss maybe? (only my 2nd season so just learning, sorry haha)

    It's all my brother in law's fault for me, he's from Pennsylvania. He got me started hunting for them a few couple years ago and he is also an avid amateur pizza maker sooo... pizza with the merkelz is awesome!!

    . . .Loved the "Morel Mini Pizzas" done in a cupcake pan. Thanks for posting.

    . . .consider posting this again on the Mushroom Dinner Pics & Recipes forum. You'll find this forum listing under Fourms, Morel Country, Mushroom Dinner Pics & Recipes (2nd listing down). There is a category specifically for Morel pics and recipes. Thanks again, Turtle. Not everyone will see it under the Virginia forum.
