It was a little overcast.
Took a left at the lake,
Forgot to pull over at the picnic grounds for a hike, ended up on an 8-mile one-way road.
Pulled over at the first opportunity.
Saw the lake, got a few pictures.
No, it can't be! Not with all these people tromping around, looking at the lake...
Little shining treasures right at their feet... or about knee-high, that is.
Tasted a few... yep. Huckleberries. That zingy tart burst of purple goodness. Berry Perfect.
Spent our time picking berries instead of hiking. Good trade.
Ryler documented our adventure.
Here's his view from the top of the water bottle...
Oh, that indescribable burst of flavor!
We still have enough berries for the Dad's birthday coming up... time for some Huckleberry Cheesecake!
I may be a little stingy with the berries, but if you stop by, I'll share a bit of toast and jam. Maybe. If we don't eat it all first. Better hurry on over. :)
