Sunday Snapshots

Fairy slipper - This is the first one we say, and then we noticed them everywhere.

A two year old chopping down morels with glee!  

A quick dip in the hot spring. 

We made it home just as it was getting dark.   When we got into the car it was just after 7pm (Montana time). We had been tromping around the woods for 9 hours.  No complaints from the kids...  we stopped at the Lochsa Lodge for dinner... and did not clean our kitchen.  Here is our loot: 8 lbs of morels!


  1. Oh, wow! I found several morels yesterday...but I'm not really sure that's what they are. Rather than the gray/brainy coloring, these ones have stems the color of mac & cheese, with a rich brown cap. Ring any bells?

    1. the best way to tell if you have a morel is to cut it in half lengthwise. A morel is hollow all the way from the stem and top like a straw.
