I haven't done the mushroom thing much, but can you find morels on the west side of the mountains in low elevation woody areas? I know old burn areas are great, just curious if anyone finds them around typical suburban woods areas.

Yes. Look for large cotton wood trees.

Hit up the addicted crew and Jordan Knigge. They put out some good videos that have morel mushroom picking like this one.

A lot of the westside morels are false morels. An early morel, verba bohemica, is commonly found around cottonwoods. I have gathered them and eaten them, but quit after I found out that they contain a toxin requiring par boiling to neutralize. Neither my wife, nor I cared much for the taste of false morels. Here's a video that shows the difference between a true morel and the false morel found around here.

Waterboy is correct. Look for them in stands of mature black cottonwoods. The bigger, the better.
