Morel mushrooms are considered a gourmet delicacy by many people. They only appear in wooded areas for a couple of weeks in the early Spring. This was the first I have sighted this year. Sliced up and fried, they are quite tasty.

This old beauty was built in 1903 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. Designated a class 900 engine, it was built for the  Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company.
