Morel Mushroom 4700

On March 23rd, some friends and I went on a mushroom hunt close to the place on Old Lampasas Trail where I went back and photographed the golden groundsel the next day. I led our little group to the spot where some years earlier I’d found a colony of morel mushrooms, Morchella esculenta, large enough to have gathered (and then eaten) several pounds of them, but this time there wasn’t a single one. We kept looking in the area, and eventually along a nearby creek we managed to find exactly three morel mushrooms. This was one of the three.
