Huckleberry Picking

Aimee came back home for a week and a half to attend our Rhoades reunion.  She really wanted to go huckleberry picking while she was here, so we planned for that.  We'd already previously been up to pick at Dogob a couple weeks earlier so we decided to go to Bare Mountain.  We got there right about when it was time to eat, so we began with that, while viewing this wonderful scenery.  David got settled in his camp chair and said the view was so nice he might just stay there and not pick berries!  He did end up picking.

We had some really cute little helpers!

And some cute bigger helpers, too!  Aimee actually got into picking and didn't want to stop.

When we arrived back at the van, the sky was really gorgeous!

When we were getting ready I saw all of the big girls had on Waterways shirts so I decided to match . . . so then we had to get a picture!!

And a couple pictures of all of the kids on a log sitting there where we parked.

And, last but not least, the fruits of our labors!  This is probably the best we have ever done at one time . . . 5 1/4 gallons of huckleberries!!

All packaged and ready to freeze.

A very successful trip . . . lots of berries picked, lots of sightseeing and fun running around in the forest . . . only in the Great PNW!!!
