Myco club kicked off the 2015 foray season with a morel hunt. We set off from Northeast Minneapolis on a chilly early May Saturday morning, and southbound we went! First stop: Red Wing. After stretching our legs and refueling on some coffee we met with the second group of mycophiles. From Red Wing it was a short drive south to the first spot of the day, Hay Creek Recreation Area.
