This chance meeting explained the mushroom signs we had seen
two days ago on the Cassiar Highway
We came upon 50+ km of forest that had been burned last summer.
It was in this blackened forest we saw lots of temporary campsites with 'mushrooms' signs. There is a small blue camp just visible in this photo.
The morel season lasts about one month in early summer. The morel mushrooms are dried and sold to NewYorkcity and European buyers.
