Hunting morels in the Ochocos, a long trek to find enough to make it worth the effort.
Ron and I (Linda) came home with enough at the end of the day to feel good about our two night trip to Ochocos. It is so very beautiful up there in the spring that it is hard to complain. We looked hard for morels from 5000 ft to 6000 ft. and could not figure the best altitude for fruiting. The Spring King boletes, Boletus rex-veris, surprised us with the fresh and firm specimens and they are all drying in my food dryer as we speak.
