California mushroom hunters blocked from burned areas


(CNN) - Tourist are flocking to California, to a former forest. Burned and decaying trees at Yosemite National Park, create the perfect growth conditions for these rare and pricey morel mushrooms.

Mushroom hunters have been flocking to the park this spring to find the mushrooms, but they're a disappointed bunch.
