Down the forest path we went...
...in search of the elusive but oh-so-desirable huckleberry.
They don't usually grow quite this profusely, so you can bet we picked like crazy when we did find the bushes loaded.
Three hours of hand picking garnered about a half gallon of the luscious berries. Now I understand why they sell for $40 a gallon. But the morning spend with sweet new friends in the beautiful forest was priceless. And the berries are pretty yummy, too!
