Morel Mushrooms

Travis Frank

I've been bitten by another bug.  This time it's the morel mushroom addiction that is consuming all of my time.  Heck, I almost forgot that I have a boat wishing it were in the water.  I've been so busy hunting mushrooms that I have forgotten about almost all else.  But, it's been for good reason.  I've found the mother load!  Right now many of you are probably thinking..."hmmm, I wonder if he'll give me a few"...well, haha, think again.  These tasty devils are only around for a few days each year, and it will be over soon, if it isn't already.  In my hastiness to grab as many as possible the last few days, I have forgotten to take a moment to snap a few photos.  Yesterday I wrapped the camera around my neck and as luck would have it, I found the largest mushroom of the season.  This honker was huge, and posed for a few perfect photos.  P.S. if you want some of my extra shrooms, you have to act quick, dishing out my surplus at record speeds....
