Memorable Morels

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend.  We had a great time up at the Ranch although we didn’t spend that much time actually on the ranch itself.  We went hunting.

Favorite Find

It was such a fun weekend.  On Saturday, we were out in the forest from about 9:30am until 6:30pm.  Ms O found the first morel of the weekend and it was one we all walked right on by!

Ms O

She was proud of her morel.

Her Prize

We walked and walked and walked.  The kids just kept on going.  Chris and I couldn’t help but take advantage of their love of the outdoors.

Favorite Log

Ms O entertained us with her singing, Eddie made us laugh with his special “mush-a-room” walk and Augie amazed us with his finds.


They are all so much closer to the ground than Chris and I so we had the best spotters ever.

Augie's Happy

At least that’s our excuse.

Few Hours Later

Needless to say, everyone got plenty dirty, but Ms I won the prize everyday.


Now we’re back home enjoying our bounty every night.  We fired up the dehydrator tonight, but we kept some out for a few more fresh morel dinners.  Oh, and yep, I plan on throwing some porcini burgers on the grill as well.

    That looks so fun! I can’t believe how dirty Ms. O got! Your pictures make me miss Oregon. 😦


  3. I love mushrooms too but couldn’t spot an edible one if I was laying in a field of them. The photos are wonderful….all that dirt is perfect for an outing!


  4. Found your site thru a friend who was enjoying our morel stories…looks like you guys found quite a bit…makes our three rather pathetic 🙂 But they were still delicious! You have a lovely family! Happy hunting!
