Looking for mushrooms a little early yielded no morels yet. I did  find ramps and the fiddleheads are coming up. I managed to get 1.5 off trail for a total of 12.5 miles with a 2.5mph moving average.

Interesting mushroom. Black Trumpet?

The fiddleheads were popping up everywhere. I’ve never been brave enough to pick and eat them.

Numerous swollen stream crossing and  sloppy trail conditions made the hike slightly more challenging.

I dunno , I looked in all the usual places. The leaf litter seems a little deeper and I bet their were some smaller ones not poking through yet. Looking again next week.

We found over five pounds in one area over in Scioto Trails…went back the next two days same place and found tons more. Finding black ones, a few gray, and some of the red ones. Haven’t been out the past two days cause of rain suppose to go back tomorrow after work if it doesn’t rain, if it does will hit it again this weekend. Got lots of great pics on fb! Good luck to you and happy hunting!!! (:
