Smile The Illusive Morel....

I am the youngest in my family and also the only girl. Needless to say, I didn't have much sibling companionship. A lot of my time was spent with my father, when he wasn't working the swing shift at the local paper making factory.

On warm spring days in May we'd head out in the old purple pickup to the forest, with our brown bag lunch, quart jars full of water and our dog, Cinder.

We'd drive deep into the forest, to our favorite morel picking spot and hope that no one had been there before us. The woods we picked in were very hilly so once we got to the top of a hill, we'd try to stay on that ridge as to not have to climb yet another great huge hill. Many the hill we did climb though.

We'd spend hours walking, talking, looking for that illusive morel. Some days we'd find many, other days nothing. It wasn't about how many we found though, that time spent together in the forest was what it was all about, the morel was just a bonus.

He taught me a great deal about nature and how to survive in it. He taught me how to identify birds, trees, plants and most importantly, which mushrooms were edible.

I'm 40 years old and dad and I still go out every May looking for morels. At least that's what we say we're doing. Most of our time now is spent sitting in the warm spring sun on the back of the pickup, talking.
