Trails have somewhat opened up. This trail wasn't officially open so we basically just used the road to park and we spent a majority of our time near the car poking around in the woods looking for morels. Found my first yellow morel ever (Morchella esculenta) and managed to find my first Spring boletes (Boletus rex-veris). I could have picked more of the boletes but I wasn't sure of the ID. I may have to go back now that I know what to look for.

Great day to wander around. My foot is finally getting used to being in a stiffer hiking boot.
