    A week of vacation starts TODAY for me, and I am heading out every day for morels until mid week, then heading a bit further for boletes. So excited! The morel season here lasts maybe six weeks; the elevation just keeps creeping up for them.

    Smoked 'em yesterday too. Four and a half bags (close to 2 dehydrator-fulls). Another morel pizza (and a BIG one!!) for dinner. Making morel lasagna today. Morel omelette for breakfast. My daughter requires me this afternoon so that's keeping me from the hunt for a few hours. We are about to get some blessed rain, too, which bodes well for the bolete hunting. Life is pretty good..

    Happy birthday mannaman!! Jeff, actually I bought that knife for my boyfriend. To help inspire him to hunt with me. IT WORKED!! We slayed them
    again today. I found a bunch of gorgeous boletes; he found the biggest, fattest morels I have ever seen. When the morels are almost as big as the boletes, life is grand. :)
