Mushroom Hunting and Other Distractions
I did get to sneak out with my Dad recently to paddle up a secret creek in search of the ever elusive Oklahoma morel mushrooms. It was Dad's first time paddling a kayak, but he is a very skilled canoe paddler so he was fairly comfortable paddling Dianne's Heritage Angler fishing kayak.
It was great to get a chance to share an hour or so paddling with Dad. He has a bad back, so I wouldn't want to subject him to a long paddling trip. Paddling the local creek was just perfect. When I was young, Dad tried to teach me about many kinds of Oklahoma hunting. Morel hunting is my favorite. I only wish it were a longer season.
Despite it being early in the season, we enjoyed 70+ degree temps, sunshine and just enough cloud cover for good picture taking. Check my Flickr pages to see more pictures from this trip, I have a special Flickr set for Morel mushroom shots from this trip. Stop by and see the Oklahoma outdoors pictures Dianne and I take and leave us a comment sometime. We would love to hear from you!
