So, Avi and a friend, and I, decided to do some morel mushroom hunting in Tillamook State Forest this weekend. Sadly we didn’t find any. We did have a nice walk though.
The trail is very steep and while the walk DOWN was pleasant, the walk back up was horrifying.
Avi and Yuh-chi were ahead of me most of the time. I prefer the gentler sports of competitive knitting and downhill tatting, so hiking was a little more difficult for me.
We found some familiar sights in an unfamiliar setting.
There were these giant calla lily like plants along a stream. It was very primordial and similar to a “Jurassic park” landscape.
We found some fallen logs and fun bridges.
There were also streams that meandered and gave us some great photo opportunities.
There were many trilliums blooming.
There was even one growing on a tree.
We also found some mushrooms, just not the ones we were looking for on the trail. Yuh-chi and I are planning another excursion. Hopefully it bears more mushrooms.
