Well things are very quiet here on the Wyoming page ... what up? Thinking of a road trip with the camper up from Colorado to Wyoming, where should we go? We'll be on the road May 10 - 20ish. We are familiar with scouring the cottonwood flood plains in the spring for a few yellows/whites/greys in the spring (mid May 5300-6600') hunting for morels - conditions all have to line up really well for a decent harvest. Most years its a few handfuls, we are weekend warriors. We finally have made time to go on a real morel hunt, and picked a weird year. When will soil temps heat up?

Any suggestions where, when timing? TIA! Happy hunting. Thinking maybe Crook county area?

Val - Heavy rain last night (+2 inch) in Crook County and still raining may get them started. Have yet to hear of any black morels found in the Bearlodge (productive pine) portion of the county.

Thanks so much for the update! I suspect we won't have to go that far after all, especially if this weekend storm amounts to anything in western Northern CO - Baggs area and the little Snake look promising as well, just not sure about public lands on the banks - we think we will mosey up the western slope of CO and scout along the way. Any knowledge you have of the Baggs area river access and care to share, its is appreciated. Thanks for the again for the update. Val
