They left without me
I got up pretty early this morning, but when I went over to the main house everyone was gone. I knew where they went, but was surprised they left so early. Not to be left out, I drove my van up forest road 62 until I found Dan’s truck along side the road where I too stopped.
I found Sue first and she pointed to where Dan was so I joined him hunting mushrooms. Morels like to grow in fire burns and disturbed areas so we were hunting in a section of the forest that burned two years ago.

My best find today
Looking for Shrooms at Elk Flat Trailhead
I went off to look in one direction and Dan another and Sue took off in her walker too.
Chippy the monk
I ran into Dan and he said he was about as beat as I was. I asked where Sue was and he pointed out where she was. So I went over to Sue and advised her she better make a U turn soon and head back to the truck as it would take a bit for her to get out of the place she was.
Sue finds mushrooms using her walker
I caught up with Sue here. She had found four mushrooms and was pleased to be out mushrooming and being able to find some shrooms too. I’m not sure how she maneuvered through the logs in back of her, but she did.
We then headed on back towards home stopping in a couple places to check them out for mushrooms.
I watched as Dan hunted
What are they looking at
Dan’s truck stopped in the road in front of me for a few seconds and moved on so I moved up and stopped to see what they were looking at.
I wasn’t sure at first, but it sorta looked like it might be a moose which I hadn’t seen around here before, but had heard there were some around.
A moose or what
All three beat
When we arrived home we all three were dragging our butts. We got a lot of exercise, found some morels and had a good day.
After a snack and a nap, we had dinner and then sat around on the deck for the rest of the day. The sun was out with only a breeze so it was a real nice day up in the forest.
