Last year I found a decent spot for chanterelles along the Great Allegheny Passage. I was hoping they would return again this year. But I was unsure about the right time to find them. But then last night I overheard someone at the Dollar General say that they had found 17 pounds of them and that they would be selling them to some restaurants. So that was our cue to go and check the secret spot.
Success! We didn’t find 17 pounds, but we only looked for 5 minutes and all we really wanted was enough for dinner.
