Huckleberry season or Trailside Munchies

It s Huckleberry season! The delicious little berries are just starting to ripen, so are the wild strawberries. These make for delays while hiking since you simply must stop to nibble. There are lots of great huckleberry patches around the valley, everyone has their favorite. My fingers are always stained purple this time of year from berry-picking. Last year even my dog figured out what I was doing and helps himself to berries (and leaves and twigs, he s not quite as picky). The strawberries are so fragrant it took me two days hiking the same trail to figure out that the strong strawberry smell wasn t the teenage girl s strawberry lip-gloss who walked by with her family it was really strawberries! Your fingers smell like strawberry for hours after picking them yum. The Indian Paintbrush, Fireweed and my favorite, the Harebells are out in force really pretty wild flower display this year thanks to all our moisture earlier. Of course Fall is kind of in the air we actually had frost in the valley yesterday morning (36 degrees on my deck) but then it warmed up to the low 80s in the afternoon. It wasn t heavy enough to damage anything, my little vegetable patch is still hanging in there and the tomato plant (that didn t get rolled into the garage oops!) seems just fine. This morning was 15 degrees warmer, not a cloud in the sky another Blue-bird day in Jackson Hole. The moon is putting on a show right now too last night it was full with clear skies and provided enough light to throw the ball for the dog at 10pm. Huckleberries still on the bush
