On the Trail

Last week, I met my friend Cheri to walk the Kal-Haven Trail.  We were looking forward to catching up with each other -- but we were also in search of trillium.  We'd heard they were already in bloom (a couple of weeks early this year) -- and we didn't want to miss them.  

Our timing was perfect!

The hillsides along the trail were covered with trillium.

It was sort of magical.

There were lots of other early-spring wildflowers in bloom along the trail -- and redbuds floating above.

It also turned out to be a great day for spotting Michigan morel mushrooms!

I'm always leery of picking morels when I think I see them -- because I'm never certain . . . Is it a morel?  Or will I die if I eat it?  So I tend to just leave them be.  My friend, Cheri, though?  She's an experienced morel-hunter!  Now . . . I know what I'm looking for.

And we found a bunch  - right there on the trail.  Enough for tasty hors d'oeuvres before dinner.

Catching up with a friend.  Awesome wildflowers.  And morels.

All in all . . .  a great day on the trail!
