Morrel along the trail

morrel mushroom in OntarioMorrel mushrooms are always a pleasant surprise to me.  While walking the blue trail at Trent University a few weeks ago we were lucky to spot them.  This trail is not a long walk, but very enjoyable as it passes through cedar woods, along maple swamps and old fields. – Lots of different things to see as you walk along the trail.

And yes, for those who may be wondering, Nova Scotia also has morrels!

  1. Ahhh, my old stomping ground. I worked at Trent for 25 years before retiring to Nova Scotia. What beautiful campus it has. And the trails are lovely. There is a lovely trail along the top of the drumlin that overlooks the campus.
