When it comes to hunting mushrooms, the spring morel mushroom is king of the woods. Yet fall is a fabulous time to be outdoors, and a great time to take your family mushroom hunting. The days are cooler, the colors beautiful and the still-warm earth and September rains produce a riot of mushrooms. While it is true you won’t stumble upon the prized morel, there are plenty flavorful fungi to be found.
