Hi, everyone! I'm Nate. Recently discovered my passion for wild mushrooms and have been doing tons of research and foraging. I was getting a bit discouraged last week after my 5th morel hunt turned up nothing, that maybe in the middle of the city there were none to be found. A few days later, I decided to head back to a spot I had already visited, hoping to photograph a pheasant back I'd seen growing on a log there. I knelt down to get at a better angle to take the photo, annnnnd.... 3 morels were hiding quietly behind the log! I felt dizzy with excitement - almost like I was high! I plucked them, being careful to leave the stumps behind, took a step back, and BAM! [img] Another one! I picked it and kept looking. Unfortunately I didn't find any more there (I suspect these were a few late season stragglers), but I was THRILLED and HOOKED!! This was my take for the day: [img] Just today I went back to that spot (hoping that after a good rain and some humidity I'd find another couple), and found this whopper: [img] Who knows if I'll find any more this year, but I'm hopelessly hooked!! Just wanted to share my excitement with my first ever morel find!
