In a couple of weeks we'll be picking buckets of blueberries from that spot for syrup on homeade ice cream.  We'll pick crowberries to give to our native friends that will exchange for bristol bay sockeye salmon.

Mostly we just love the hike up and back, we walk from our house to the trailhead 2 blocks away.

Ooh boy, sounds like a wonderful time. I had to look up crowberries, they sure look a lot like blueberries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Black_crowberry.jpg

Actually, they remind me of a cross between blueberries and crabapples.

BeegrlAK.  Wow, now if that isn't a picture to end all pictures.  I have heard that Alaska has some of the most beautiful scenery, that is plainly clear to see, thank you for sharing.  Have that most wonderful and great day, lovin', livin', sharin', health.  Cindi

Gorgeous picture, what a peaceful way to spend a day.
How warm does it get in the summer where you are?
I had never heard of crowberries, do they taste like blueberries? Do you process them for jams?
I took the kids blueberry picking the other day and we ended up picking 20lbs of berries.
I am going to make jam today.

Hello Natalie........  I think where you live is wonderful.....  I spent two months there working on a medical project back in 96 and really enjoyed myself.

We've have had 11 days over 70 this summer, a record!  Normally we stay in the middle of the 60's pretty cool and often rainy by this part of the summer.  We''ll be picking buckets of blueberries in two weeks.   The crowberries appeal to the natives mostly.  I find them rather tasteless, it's called akutaq in inupiat.  Here's a link
http://www.ankn.uaf.edu/NPE/CulturalAtlases/VirtualMuseum/Writings/Native%20Food/098D22F2-9971-4588-9A87-680B4FE88955.html

We pick them for some inpuiat friends out in Bristol Bay.  We freeze our blueberries instead of jam.  I make a few desserts in the winter out of it, they're just too precious and they're much richer than blueberries in the lower 48.  You must be a good berry picker!
