Ups and Downs, Fears and Summits. . .
Monotropa uniflora) for years, and we almost didn`t recognize it in this red incarnation (more used to seeing it in white)
But I knew exactly what these berries were -- huckleberries!! Again, hadn`t bumped into these for years, the berries my kids would try to pick enough of for a pie, after stories Pater tells -- he claims that he`d pick them for his mom to make into the best pies he`s ever had. And then he hastily modifies to say . . the best pies he`d ever had until my blackberry pie. . . .
These berries had me looking around for bears. . . Paul was sure they`d stay off such a travelled trail; I wasn`t convinced.
That was yesterday. Today we`re heading off to the mainland, getting ready to put some kilometres on the Honda. Road trip time, into the interior, right to the base of the Rockies. . . . not sure how much I`ll post, but you know I`ll try to check in when I can. And you know I always love your comments!
