On Tuesday we went through the Oil Creek fire of last year North of Newcastle and found two dozen black morels. For a 60,000+ acre fire we were disappointed with the finds, perhaps the red clay soil is not right for morels?
You probably could have found that many before the fire. I know when they had those big fires around Yellowstone people were hauling the morels out of there. It must be more condusive for morels development there.
