Hunting for mushrooms

It's morel season! At least it was two weeks ago when a friend of Rachel's came back with these:

We went out last weekend to the same area hoping to find more of the precious treasures. It was a bright sunny day with a rare view of Mt. Hood.

 As we neared the target area near the base of Mt. Adams, we found plenty of flowers

Don't know the name of this one
 But we found no mushrooms. :-( 

We came home empty handed, but with lovely memories of a fine hike.
