Dale’s late July Morels?! Umpqua National Forest!

No Comments

DalesJulymorelsMy mushroom maniacal friend Dale found a number of pounds of morels yesterday, July 26. Dale said he hunted near but NOT IN Crater Lake Nat. Park. The massive wildfires in the park last year created a bumper crop of morels, but 14 people are facing serious fines for picking in a national park.  Dale carefully regarded his map and kept away from the park boundary, staying in the long fingers of the burn that traveled into the Umpqua Nat. forest.  If you can get out and hunt right away, go now or the heat will dry them to a shrivel.
